Two motorcycles collide on W.Va. 45

GLENGARY, W.Va. - Two motorcycles collided head-on Sunday on W.Va. 45 near the entrance to the Glenwood Forest subdivision, a West Virginia State Police spokesman said.

Witnesses to the crash, which was reported about 6:10 p.m., said an eastbound motorcycle crossed the center line and struck a westbound motorcycle, Senior Trooper M.A. Cole said.

Further details, including names of the riders of the motorcycles, were unavailable Sunday because the investigating trooper, Senior Trooper J.M. Walker, still was investigating the crash, Cole said.

Cole said he thinks two people may have been riding on each of the motorcycles and the injured were taken to hospitals in Washington, D.C., and Winchester, Va.
