PORT ANGELES — A Bremerton couple was transported to Olympic Medical Center for treatment after their motorcycle hit debris in the roadway.
Clayton A. Shultz, 60, of Bremerton was driving his motorcycle west on state Highway 112 on Saturday afternoon with Susan J. Shultz, 58, of Bremerton as a passenger, according to the State Patrol.
At about 1:30 p.m., the motorcycle entered a curve to the left and the front tire struck debris in the road around milepost 40 near Twin Rivers, forcing the motorcycle off the roadway and into a ditch on the westbound side of the highway.
Both the rider and the passenger were injured and were taken by ambulance to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles.
Susan Shultz was treated and released at OMC, said Greg Waters, chief of Clallam County Fire District 4, in a press release, while Clayton Schultz was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The State Patrol reported that both Shultzes were wearing helmets and that no drugs or alcohol were suspected to be involved.
Fire District 4 responded with one engine and two ambulances and a total of six personnel, including two paramedics, an advanced EMT, an EMT and two additional personnel, Waters said.
