Three area residents were injured late last week in separate motorcycle accidents.
On Thursday, Doug Fidler, a journeyman lineman for the city utility department, sustained multiple injuries when he lost control of his 2003 Harley Davidson about 7 miles southeast of Peoria.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, the 30-year-old Quapaw man swerved to miss a dog in the roadway. His motorcycle went through a fence and hit a small tree stump.
Fidler was transported to a Joplin, Mo., hospital where he was listed in good condition.
Friday, a Jay couple sustained injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident south of Jay on U.S. Highway 59.
Lewis Tauuneacie, 49, and his wife, Teresa Tauuneacie, 50, were riding on a 2007 Harley Davidson when Lewis Tauuneacie says he swerved to miss a raccoon, laying the motorcycle on its side. The motorcycle skidded approximately 181 feet and struck a guardrail.
Lewis Tauuneacie was transported to Grove General Hospital where he was treated and released with minor injuries.
Teresa Tauuneacie was airlifted to a Tulsa hospital where she was treated for multiple injuries. She is listed in good condition.
