LEWISTON — Two motorcycle riders were injured Wednesday night when they slammed into the side of a car that turned in front of them, police said.
The driver of the car, a 52-year-old woman, was heading north on Thain Road in Lewiston when she made a left turn across traffic. Both motorcyclists were headed south and were unable to stop in time, colliding with the side of the car.
One rider, a 47-year-old man from Tensed, was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. The other rider had minor injuries but did not need an ambulance, police said.
Neither rider was wearing a helmet when the crash happened. Police cited the driver of the car for failure to yield. The crash closed the road in both directions for about 30 minutes.
