Motorcycle accident sends two to the hospital in OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY – According to Lt. Eddie Southard with Oklahoma City, a motorcycle accident sent two to a local hospital.

Just after 12:30 p.m. authorities received a call about a motorcyclist crashing on the side of Hefner Parkway near NW 50th street.

When emergency crews arrived on scene, a husband and wife were laying on the east side of the road by their motorcycle.

Officials say the couple were traveling west on I-44 and took the Hefner Parkway exit too fast and lost control.

Drivers coming from I-44 west will not be able to take the exit onto Hefner Parkway due to the accident.

Both people were transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.
