2 injured in motorcycle crash near Pineview Reservoir

HUNTSVILLE, Weber County — A man and woman were critically injured Friday after their motorcycle crashed into a turning car near Pineview Reservoir.

The man was driving a motorcycle heading west on state Route 39, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office. The woman was riding behind as passenger.

A vehicle traveling east turned left in front of the motorcycle into a pullout by the reservoir, and the motorcycle hit the side of the vehicle at full speed, Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Jason Talbot reported. The driver told police she didn't see the motorcycle.

Neither motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, police said.

The woman was taken to an area hospital by medical helicopter, officials said. The man was transported by ambulance. The driver and passenger in the car were not injured.

Speed was not a contributing factor to the crash, Talbot said.

State Route 39 was expected to remain closed in the area until 11 p.m.
