Riley County Police are investigating a vehicle collision that sent two drivers to the hospital for injury, Sunday.

Caleb Deines (17) of Manhattan was travelling eastbound on Kimball Avenue in his 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. While negotiating the curve of the roadway, Deines lost control of his vehicle, which slid perpendicular, blocking both eastbound lanes.

 A 2007 Yamaha YZFR1 motorcycle, driven by Jordan Parr-Hess,  attempted to avoid the Grand Am. As a result, the motorcycle crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a 2010 Chevy Suburban, driven by Mary Elkins (60) of Harveyville.

 Parr-Hess was ejected from his motorcycle and sustained significant injury. He was transported to Mercy Regional and ultimately flown to a nearby hospital. Elkins was also transported to Mercy Regional for non-life threatening injuries.

Police are investigating this incident as an aggravated battery due to reckless driving. No arrests have been made or citations issued at this time.
