Two motorcyclists hurt in Laquey
LAQUEY, Mo. (May 21, 2009) — A two-vehicle motorcycle crash near Laquey injured two Lebanon riders Wednesday afternoon, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Neither rider was wearing his helmet, troopers reported.

The wreck happened at 3:25 p.m. on Highway AB just west of Highway 17 when Wesley D. Horsley, 39, was riding eastbound on a 2004 Yamaha Warrior and following Gregory W. McFadin, 43, on a 1980 Harley-Davidson. As both approached a stop sign, Horsley’s Yamaha struck the rear of McFadin’s Harley-Davidson and both riders were ejected from their motorcycles.

Horsley suffered serious injuries and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon; McFadin suffered moderate injuries but refused medical treatment at the scene.

The Harley sustained extensive damage and the Yamaha had moderate damage. Both owners said they would remove their motorcycles at a later time.
