Motorcyclists injured in accident with pickup

May 25, 2009

FUNKSTOWN -- Two brothers riding motorcycles on East Oak Ridge Drive just west of the stone bridge Monday afternoon were injured when the driver of a pickup truck slid across the wet roadway, hitting one cyclist head-on and bumping the other off the road.

The brothers, both from the Hagerstown area, were taken to Washington County Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries shortly after the 3 p.m. accident, rescue personnel said.

Washington County Sheriff's Dep. T.L. Atwell said he cited the pickup truck driver for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and failure to drive right of center.

No names of those involved were available late Monday afternoon.
