2 seriously injured in vehicle crash on Golden Strip

Four people were injured, two seriously, in a violent crash that involved two motorcycles and a Chevrolet Equinox in front of TGI Friday’s on East Third Street, just west of Tinsman Avenue, in Loyalsock Township, about 5:20 p.m. Tuesday, state police said.

A man and his female passenger were on one motorcycle while the second motorcycle was operated by a woman, police said. Both women were wearing helmets, police said.

The two motorcycles were traveling east in the passing lane when they and the Equinox collided as its female driver was pulling out of TGI Fridays to head west, police said.

At least four ambulances and several paramedics were dispatched.

The three motorcyclists and the driver of the Equinox were all taken to UPMC Williamsport. There was no word on their medical condition Tuesday night.

Traffic was detoured off of East Third Street from Westminster Drive to Clayton Avenue.

Police closed off the area for an extended period of time as an accident reconstructionist processed the scene.

The identities of those involved were expected to be released later today, police said.
