Motorcycle Crash Results In Two Being Airlifted To Scottsdale


A motorcycle crash on Highway 87 north of Pine on Sunday resulted in two people being airlifted to a Scottsdale hospital, police said. Both were released Sunday evening.

Two motorcycles, one with a male and a female, and the other with one male, straggled behind a larger group at 2 p.m. on Sunday, said Arizona Department of Public Safety Officer Henry Thomason.

While straightening out from a southbound curve at milepost 273, the 23-year-old male and female of unknown age hit the guardrail and fell from the bike, Thomason said.

The solo driver, a 39-year-old male, ran into the first bike, but did not go to the hospital. Names are not being released.

All three wore helmets. The female, who hit her head, said she didn’t remember anything. Thomason said that’s why she was flown to the hospital. Both the female and younger male had road rash, and the younger male had some cuts.

“Witnesses there said they were going a little fast,” Thomason said. Charges are pending for the 23-year-old, who was driving with a suspended license.

All three were from the Phoenix area.
