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.
