The highway patrol says that two people are seriously injured after the motorcycle they were riding on, reportedly, is run off the road.

It happened just before 5:00 Sunday morning on Highway-U, south of Barton School Road, in Miller County.

After traveling off the road, the bike struck a ditch and overturned ejecting the driver and the occupant.

45-year-old Tretch Lawrence, of Kaiser, was flown to University Hospital while 33-year-old Aimee Nye, of Brumley, was taken to Lake Regional Hospital.

Neither one had, apparently, been wearing a helmet.
