Authorities say three bicyclists are recovering after being injured in a collision with a motorcycle near Rock Rapids on northwest Iowa.
The accident happened Monday night when five teenage girls were riding bicycles on a Lyon County road. A motorcyclist traveling in the same direction came upon the girls, but couldn't stop in time.
The sheriff's office says the driver laid the motorcycle down on the highway to avoid a direct hit. The motorcyclist and the motorcycle then hit three of the girls.
The girls, all from Rock Rapids, were taken to a local hospital. Two were transferred to a hospital in Sioux Falls to be treated for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
The motorcyclist, also of Rock Rapids, suffered minor injuries.
