Two people were hurt in a motorcycle accident on Sunday afternoon near Oakland.
A report from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says that just after 2:30 p.m. three men were riding their motorcycles on Driver Valley Road near Old Pioneer. The lead rider, Albert Gritzer, tried to avoid a large turkey that was in the road. Another rider Allen Rummer, was unable to stop in time and tried to go around Albert, but instead clipped the back corner of Gritzner’s bike.
Both Allen Rummer and Albert Gritzner were thrown from their motorcycles and landed on the edge of the roadway. Allen Rummer was taken to Mercy Medical Center with minor injuries. The third motorcyclist was not hurt.
