A trip to the lake for Bikefest gets cut short with trips, instead, to the emergency room for a couple of participants. The first happened shortly before 2:00 Saturday afternoon on Hwy. 87 near Boulder Road in Miller County. The bike operated by 47-year-old Charles Pettipiece, of Independence, ran off the road and struck the ground. Pettipiece suffered serious injuries and was flown to University Hospital. The second accident happened shortly after 2:00 Saturday afternoon on Business 54 a short distance west of Bagnell Dam. In it, 51-year-old Emerson Lemka, of Latour, was attempting to make a left turn on his bike when he was hit from behind by another bike operated by 57-year-old Darrel Pettay, of Peculiar. Lemka was not injured. Pettay, however, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Lake Regional.
