Two people were injured in a four vehicle accident in downtown Sioux Falls over the weekend.
Police say the accident happened at around 10 o'clock Saturday night.
They say the 73-year-old driver of a Ford Escape was heading the wrong way on the 11th Street Viaduct when the Escape hit a motorcyclist head on. The motorcycle then drifted into the other lane causing another SUV to brake to avoid hitting it. The SUV was hit from behind by another motorcyclist who couldn't brake fast enough.
Both motorcyclists were taken to the hospital, one with leg and hip trauma, the other had road rash and shoulder trauma.
The driver of the Ford Escape, from Burke, was ticketed for driving the wrong way down a one way street.
