Motorcycle riders in critical condition | News
EDMOND, Okla. – Two motorcycle riders remain in critical condition after they collided with an SUV in Edmond Sunday afternoon.
The wreck happened just after 3 p.m. at the intersection of 33rd St. and Lincoln Blvd.
“A female driver with her son that was turning off of 33rd St. headed south towards Lincoln and hit the Harley,” Edmond Police spokesperson Jenny Monroe said.
Both the male and female motorcycle riders were thrown about 40 feet from the initial impact.
Police said neither were wearing helmets.
Michael Dooley witnessed the accident and ran to help.
“The lady next to me was crying so people were kind of screaming and ,you know, a lot of blood and things like that,” he said. “It about made me want to throw up, you know? Pretty tragic, pretty tragic. They hit, initially you heard the screech and then you saw the hit. But you know the bodies traveling such a high speed. When it knocks the boots off and things like that, you know that it’s a heavy impact.”
Dooley also rides motorcycles and said he does not wear a helmet either.
“After seeing a scene like that, it makes you appreciate what you got so you know I may reconsider that, I don’t know,” he said.
Other motorcycle riders passing the horrible scene said they thought the same things.
“Safety wise, I think everyone should wear one. I should wear one too,” said Martin Kelley.
Police interviewed the driver of the SUV on scene as they pieced together exactly what happened.
They tell us she will not be cited at this time and that alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
Dooley said the images of the accident won’t soon leave his mind.
“I pray to God that they do make it and you know it was horrifying,” Dooley said.
The motorcycle riders have been identified as 27-year-old Steven Carson and 27-year-old Sheena See.
