Two incidents, one involving two cars and the other a motorcycle, marred last week on Hill roads, according to California Highway Patrol Public Information Officer Darren Meyer.
At 6:45 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, Eric Frost, 43, of Idyllwild, was driving his 2004 black Mazda truck westbound on Highway 74 in the vicinity of Strawberry Creek near mile marker 54.06. At the same time, Marlon Nance, 62, also of Idyllwild, was driving eastbound in a 2003 maroon Chevrolet Trailblazer when one of the drivers (the preliminary CHP report did not specify) crossed over the double-yellow line causing the vehicles to collide.
Nance was transported by American Medical Response to Hemet Valley Medical Center complaining of pain. The other driver was not transported. Both vehicles were damaged in the collision.
At 1:50 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, Tammy Storts, 51, of Hemet, was riding her 2003 black Honda Shadow motorcycle southbound just north of Cedar Glen Drive on Highway 243 when she slowed, by her own account, to 15 mph, and pulled onto the shoulder. When she did so, she traversed over gravel, causing the motorcycle to fall over. No other vehicle or persons were involved. Storts complained of pain and was transported to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs.
