A pickup/motorcycle crash at the intersection of Route 40 and Palmer Rd. sent two motorcyclists to the hospital with what were described as critical injuries.

According to initial reports, a pickup truck northbound on Palmer Rd. pulled out into the path of the westbound motorcycle. The crash occurred around 2:30 on Sunday afternoon.

The riders on the cycle were reported to be an adult male and a juvenile female. The lone occupant of the truck was not injured.

A Route 40 resident, who did not wish to be identified, said he heard the crash, then heard his wife scream, "Oh my God! That motorcycle hit that truck!"

The crash is still under investigation by the Miami County Sheriff's Department.
