A 67-year-old Laurel man was injured early Sunday evening when he laid over his motorcycle at the intersection of 64th Street West and Danford, according to Montana Highway Patrol.

Howard Wood was traveling south on 64th Street West with his son when the accident occurred around 5:20 p.m. Montana Highway Patrol Officer Justin Kirchheck said Wood's son was riding a motorcycle ahead of Wood and slowed as he approached the intersection. Kirchheck said Wood may have seen his son slowing down and hit the brakes too hard.

Wood was taken to a Billings hospital, and the extent of his injuries was not known. He was not wearing a helmet, Kirchheck said.

Also Sunday, two Livingston men were injured when the motorcycles they were riding collided on U.S. 87 about 10 miles south of Roundup.

Clark Kelly and Chad Warhang were traveling northbound toward Roundup around 3:20 p.m. when they pulled out to pass another vehicle. A second vehicle then pulled out to make a left turn in front of the two motorcyclists, said MHP Officer Virginia Kinsey. Kelly slammed on the brakes, and Warhang ran into the back of Kelly's motorcycle, sending Kelly off the road and forcing Warhang's cycle onto its side, Kinsey said.

Kelly was taken to a Roundup hospital and released. Warhang was taken to St. Vincent Healthcare; the extent of his injuries were unknown, Kinsey said. Neither rider was wearing a helmet.

MHP still was investigating the accident Sunday.
