A 63-year-old man and his 64-year-old wife were riding a motorcycle along Highway 69 when a 24-year old man stepped out in front of them, a Prescott Valley Police official said.

All three went to the hospital after the resulting crash on Friday, April 22.

At about 5 p.m., the motorcycle was approaching the intersection of Highways 69 and 169, when the younger man tried to cross the road just ahead of them, according to Sgt. Jake Jackson.

The collision caused the two riders to be thrown from the motorcycle.

Both the pedestrian and the passenger suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries and were flown to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital.

The younger man was taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center with bruises and a sprained ankle.

“There are no citations issued at this time as investigation continues, but there is no initial indication of impaired or distracted driving and safety equipment employed by the motorcyclists appears to have been instrumental in preventing even more serious injuries,” Jackson said.
