An injury accident sends a man and woman to the hospital after the motorcycle they were on side swiped a car on Interstate-70.

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office reports that David Drake, 54 of Emporia and his passenger, Tracy Smith, 49 of Lawrence were both transported to Salina Regional Health Center Saturday evening after a crash on I-70 near the cloverleaf at I-135.
