LAKEPORT, Calif. – Two people were flown to a regional trauma center after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle crash late Sunday afternoon.
The major injury crash occurred in front of 99 Soda Bay Road in Lakeport shortly before 4:45 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
A motorcycle – described by witnesses as a Harley-Davidson, initially said to be red with another person stating it was black – was reported down in the roadway, with the road partially blocked by arriving emergency vehicles, according to reports from the scene.
It was not clear immediately if another vehicle was involved. Witnesses reported seeing only the motorcycle, and suggested it may have lost control coming around a sharp corner.
Lakeport Fire and Kelseyville Fire responded, finding two people with injuries – a male and a female, radio reports indicated.
Firefighters requested a REACH air ambulance and planned to take the female patient to Lampson Field to meet the helicopter for transport because she had an altered mental state following the crash, according to scanner traffic.
A short time later, firefighters called for a second air ambulance and also transported the male patient to Lampson Field so he, too, could be flown out, reports stated.
REACH 1 and REACH 6 both reported lifting off shortly before 5:30 p.m. bound for Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.
Additional details will be posted as they become available.
