A multi-vehicle accident involving a Denver man left two motorcyclists injured in Pennsylvania, according to Lancaster Online. The accident happened on September 27 near the intersection of Route 222 and Landis Valley Road in Manheim Township, Pennsylvania at around 4:30 p.m.
“It appeared a car struck the back of the motorcycle, causing the two riders to be thrown off the cycle,” Manheim Township Fire and Rescue Chief Rick Kane told Lancaster Online.
According to Manheim Township police Sgt. Tom Rudzinski, there were a total of four vehicles involved in the wreck, including the motorcycle. The drivers of the vehicles included a 23-year-old Denver man, a 19-year-old man from Lancaster, a 41-year-old woman from Kirkwood and a 25-year-old man from Lancaster.
“The only driver listed as a patient at Lancaster General Hospital on Saturday was [the Denver man], who was in fair condition,” a nursing supervisor told Lancaster Online.
The motorcyclists were reportedly transported to the hospital as trauma patients, but neither appeared to have life-threatening injuries. It was also reported, but unconfirmed by Kane, that one of the injured motorcyclists was pregnant.
The police have released no further information regarding the accident, because the wreck was still under investigation at the time of this report.
