A three vehicle crash involving two SUVs and a motorcycle sent two people to the hospital in Salina Saturday afternoon.
Salina Police Officer Kyle Jacobs told KSAL News at the scene witnesses say that the crash was caused by an SUV failing to stop at red light.
According to Jacobs a Nissan SUV was headed east on Iron Avenue. The driver failed to yield at a red light and crossed into the path of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle that was headed south on Ohio. The motorcycle collided with the SUV. The rider, who was wearing a helmet, was ejected from the bike and thrown into the hood and windshield of the SUV.
After being hit by the motorcycle, the Nissan was then hit by a Kia SUV.
The motorcycle rider was transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center with multiple injuries. The driver of the Nissan was transported to the hospital as well, by private vehicle. Two people who were in the Kia were not hurt.
Names were not immediately available at the scene.
A small section of both southbound lanes of Ohio were closed for over an hour while first responders worked the scene.
The crash happened at around 2:00 Saturday afternoon.
