A man and a woman were critically injured when their motorcycle collided with a pickup truck on a winding road in Green Valley, the California Highway Patrol said Sunday.
The collision took place in Angeles National Forest on Spunky Canyon Road, west of Calle Corona about 1:20 p.m. Saturday, the CHP said.
Mark Collins, 52, of Granada Hills and his passenger Elizabeth Stirret, 51, of Azusa were riding a 2007 Harley-Davidson Road Glide bike west on Spunky Canyon Road, near Calle Corona when they approached a 2011 Ford F-150 truck driven by Jennifer Barber, 56, of Green Valley who was also heading west, the CHP said.
Barber slowed her truck down to make a left turn into her driveway and Collins, who authorities said was traveling at an unsafe speed for changing traffic conditions, hit the rear of the truck with the motorcycle.
Collins and Stirret both suffered severe blunt trauma to their left legs and were airlifted to Antelope Valley Hospital by Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics. Their current conditions were unknown.
Barber was not hurt, according to the CHP, which said alcohol and drugs did not play a role in the crash.
