Two people were seriously injured north of Johnstown when the male driver lost control of the motorcycle they were riding.
The man was driving a Honda CBR 600 motorcycle north on Weld County Road 17 around 9:25 p.m. Sunday when he was coming around the curve just past Weld 50. He lost control and clipped a sign marking the curve and went off the right side of the road.
The passenger, a female, apparently had her foot cut off by the sign, said Rich Armstrong with the Colorado State Patrol. The man was taken by Air Life to North Colorado Medical Center, where he was in critical condition. The woman's condition was not known.
Their identities were not available Sunday evening. The state patrol is investigating the crash, and alcohol may be a factor. Armstrong said it didn't look like either one was wearing a helmet.
