Five Injured in New York Crash Involving Three Motorcycles
August 22nd, 2012|
Five motorcyclists were injured after an accident this weekend. The Albany Times-Union reports the crash happened at around 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, along Route 7, northwest of Albany, New York.
Police state the group was traveling westbound along the highway on three motorcycles. The 45-year-old driver of a Yamaha motorcycle attempted to pass the 39-year-old operator of a Honda bike causing the two motorcycles to collide. Both bikes skidded out of control and into a guardrail along the road.
Both men and their passengers were ejected from the two bikes. The 51-year-old rider of a 2003 Suzuki then struck one of the downed bikes and crashed himself.
All five of the victims were taken to a local hospital to receive treatment for a variety of injuries sustained in the Albany Motorcycle Accident, ranging from lacerations and road rash to severe limb trauma.
Investigators say they will continue to look into what contributing factors may have played a part in causing the crash. In the meantime, no citations have been issued against any of the motorcyclists involved.
