NORTH BEND -- A 22-year-old Washington woman died Saturday after her ATV collided with another in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.

According to the Coos County Sheriff's Office, Kristen Schroeder of Graham died at Bay Area Hospital after being knocked off her quad by an ATV operated by 20-year-old Ryan Pauley of Longview.

Pauley had been jumping a "razor face" -- the sharp crest of a dune -- at the time of the collision.

Deputies say he didn't sustain any injuries as a result of the crash. Both riders were wearing helmets.
