PRESCOTT - Two motorcycle accidents occurred over the past several days, sending riders to area hospitals. The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported that a motorcycle crash occurred at about 4 p.m. Friday, on Highway 89A near Mingus West. The crash caused two riders to be transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center, although DPS said the extent of the injuries was unknown. The crash caused the closure of Highway 89A for about an hour. The second motorcycle crash of the weekend occurred on Highway 89 south of Prescott. Prescott Firefighter Conrad Jackson reported that a 34-year-old man suffered injuries after crashing his motorcycle on the switchbacks of Highway 89 near milepost 307. DPS reported that the accident occurred at about 2 p.m. Saturday. The rider was taken to a Flagstaff hospital, according to DPS, where he was admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.

Loco In PV. You are well named. Having been around motorcycle riders and racers for over 40 years and a driver of an automobile for more than that I have found some motorcycle riders that should not have been issued a license much less be on the bike. However, the number of really bad drivers of automobiles far exceeds the number of bad motorcycle riders. At least motorcycle riders can't talk and text while operating their vehicle. Too bad the same can't be said for the operators of automobiles. Between mobile phone use, inattention and just plain lousy driving habits a good portion of Arizona drivers should have their licences revolked.

These stories are so common any more that they're hardly even newsworthy.

If you ride a bike, expect to crash. It's pretty simple really.

Why all the reports on just motorcycles? Why not just report on all accidents? Guaranteed there were car accidents that were more serious than these motorcycle accidents and no report on them.
We get it...people seem to hate anyone that rides a motorcycle. Some riders are jerks but most are responsible.
I feel some of these reports are biased and try to make riders look bad. Like the gentleman that was hit in Prescott a few weeks back. It was mentioned that his equipment was faulty, helmet came off and that he passed away. That wasn't his cause of death, it was the person that hit him driving on the wrong side of the road!
