ALTONA — Two Morrisonville residents were injured in a motorcycle accident Saturday.
Ricky Jubert, 50, was driving south on Rand Hill Road near Duley Road at about 4 p.m. when the steering assembly of his 2008 Yamaha Cruiser started shaking violently, causing him to lose control, he told State Police.
He went off the west shoulder and the vehicle overturned.
Police are unsure of whether the vehicle overturned before or after it exited the roadway.
Jubert was transported to CVPH by Altona EMS for complaints of shoulder pain.
A passenger, Tina Jubert, 43, was transported by Morrisonville EMS to CVPH for reports of chest pain.
Both were treated and later released.
Police said the injuries and distance the vehicle traveled were inconsistent with a high-speed accident.
Mechanical failure was listed as the primary cause.
