ROYALTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Three people were injured when two motorcycles collided on Hartland Road in the Town of Royalton over the weekend.

Deputies say a group of 10 motorcyclists were traveling northbound Saturday afternoon when one fell behind. As he attempted to catch up the group, he rear-ended a second motorcycle.

The 35-year-old male motorcyclist who caused the crash and his 24-year-old female passenger both sustained head injuries. He was flown to ECMC by Mercy Flight while she was taken there by ambulance.

The 53-year-old male motorcyclist who was struck was uninjured, and though his 54-year-old female passenger sustained minor injuries, she signed off on medical treatment at the scene.

The 35-year-old motorcyclist was charged with following too closely. None of the names were released by the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
