Everett Police have their hands full investigating two separate motorcycle crashes Thursday afternoon. The first occurred around 5:30pm on eastbound 526 just before the tunnel to northbound I-5. It appeared that a motorcycle rear-ended a pickup truck. The rider was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. The second motorcycle crash occurred about a half hour later in the 5100 block of Evergreen Way when a motorcycle collided with a Ford Mustang. In that accident the motorcycle rider was knocked right out of his shoes. He was also transported to Providence Regional Medical Center with very serious injuries. Everett Police traffic investigators were busy working both scenes and not available for comment at the time I took these pictures.
Update: 8/17/12 4:00pm
Everett Police say the rider in the accident on SR 526 was taken to an Everett Hospital, stabilized and then last night was transferred to Harborview Hospital in Seattle and put into their Intensive Care Unit.
The rider involved in the accident on Evergreen Way was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center with serious but not life threatening injuries.
No other information is available.
