Three automobile incidents keep California Highway Patrol officers busy over the weekend.
A Highway Patrol press release states Maribel Quintanar, 37, and Roxanna Q. Perez, 19, both of El Centro, were riding a quad motorcycle about 5 p.m. Sunday and heading south in the open desert west of Heber Dunes Road and south of Heber Road at a high rate of speed. Quintanar then saw a parked motorcycle in her path and steered to the right to avoid striking it.
However, the parked motorcycle had a pull trailer attached to it and Quintanar collided with the trailer.
Quintanar and Perez were ejected from the motorcycle and sustained major injuries. They were taken to the El Centro Regional Medical Center.
Information on their condition was unavailable this morning.
In a separate incident, John Kirby, 56, of Marina was traveling east on Interstate 8 just west of Mountain Springs Road about 10:50 p.m. Sunday when he allowed his vehicle to run off the left shoulder of the road and onto a raised embankment.
