Two motorcyclists rescued on Angeles Crest

Two motorcyclists suffered serious injuries after driving off the side of Angeles Crest Highway on Sunday.

At 10:52 a.m. volunteers with Montrose Search and Rescue helped a motorcyclist who had driven over the side of the road at Angeles Crest near Upper Big Tujunga Road, at mile marker 42.

At 12:32 p.m. crews rescued another motorcyclist who went over the side of the road in the same area, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Both riders were airlifted to local hospitals for treatment.

Montrose Search and Rescue crews were able to respond quickly because they were training in the area on Sunday, according to the sheriff’s department.
