CITRUS COUNTY, FL – Two people were injured in a collision involving two motorcycles in Citrus County on Sunday morning, state troopers said.
According to the Citrus Chronicle, the crash occurred on U.S. 19 near West Ponce De Leon Boulevard near the Hernando County border at about 11:35 a.m.
The Florida Highway Patrol said a man driving northbound on a Spyder motorcycle veered between lanes before crashing into the back of a Harley Davidson Tristar motorcycle also going north, causing the Spyder to overturn. Witnesses had seen the Spyder driver trying to avoid debris in the roadway.
The driver of the Spyder, a 53-year-old Lindenhurst, New York man, and his passenger, a 50-year-old woman from New Port Richey, were taken to HCA Florida Bayonet Point Hospital. The man suffered incapacitating injuries while the woman’s injuries were not incapacitating, the FHP said.
The driver of the Harley-Davidson, a 59-year-old New Port Richey man, and his passenger, a 75-year-old New Port Richey woman, were not injured.
