A woman and two men were injured and taken to the hospital Sunday morning after two motorcycles collided head-on, emergency response officials said.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m., two motorcycles — one travelling northbound on Bouquet Canyon Road and the other southbound on the same roadway — collided at mile marker 9.6, said Sgt. Kevin Pack of the California Highway Patrol.

“Two motorcycles came head to head at that location,” he told The Signal Sunday. “Visibly their injuries appeared to be minor but there could be internal injuries,” he said. “We don’t know.”

All three injured people were taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.

Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to the crash at 11:35 a.m., said Inspector Bernard Peters.

“We transported three people to the hospital,” he said.

The crash happened along the winding stretch of Bouquet, just north of the Big Oaks Lodge and about a quarter mile southwest of the Bouquet Reservoir.

Despite the rugged terrain, paramedics reported no difficulty in treating the injured people, Peters said.

The collision is under investigation, said Pack.
