The collision involved at least two motorcycles.
UPDATE: Sgt. Steve Gorski tells us the crash involved two drunk motorcyclists.
A group of three motorcyclists were going east on Ygnacio Valley Road about ½ mile east of Oak Grove Road when they crashed. Witnesses reported they were riding recklessly prior to the collision. A female rider (48 years old from Walnut Creek ) and a male rider (47 from Walnut Creek ) were taken to John Muir Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. Another male rider with a female passenger crashed but they were not seriously injured and refused medical treatment. The male and female taken to the hospital were arrested for DUI and released from custody for medical treatment.
This is the third DUI collision in three days. Yesterday a man was arrested for DUI after hitting another car at Ygnacio Valley Road and Hillside Ave. (minor injuries) and another man was arrested for DUI Friday after striking a pole at the intersection of Bancroft and Treat (no injuries).
Thanks to Sgt. Gorski for the information on the incident.
