MOTORCYCLE COLLISION SENDS 1 TO JPS - Two motorcycles collided on the U.S. 81/287 service road between Pioneer Road and Texas 114 in Rhome about 7:45 a.m. Sunday. One of the riders was flown by Air Evac 68 to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Rhome police officers on the scene directed all media requests about the accident to Chief Brandon Davis, who was not immediately available for comment. According to Wise County Sheriff's Office initial dispatch, a medical helicopter was requested by first responders immediately after they arrived on scene. A third rider with the group, who asked to remain anonymous, said he did not see the accident occur. "I was a couple hundred yards behind," he said. "They came over the hill, and I guess they realized they had to merge and clipped." The rider said the group was returning to Utah. Read more in the midweek Messenger on newsstands Wednesday.
