DUCHESNE COUNTY, Utah, August 19, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Two motorcyclists were critically injured after their bikes collided on State Route 40 Friday afternoon.
According to a statement by the Utah Highway Patrol, Robert Davis, 48, and Mark Rice, 50, both of Colorado, were traveling together eastbound near mile marker 93 at about 4:15 p.m. when their motorcycles bumped tires.
Both men were thrown from their bikes — Davis to the roadway — and Rice to the gravel shoulder.
Troopers said Davis suffered severe head trauma, while Rice had extensive road rash on his head and upper body.
Both were transported to the Uintah Basin Medical Center. Rice was ultimately flown to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.
