CARSON CITY, NV - Three people were flown to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno after two crashes in Carson City late Friday morning.

One crash happened on Research Way in front of Carson Harley Davidson. Deputies say a man and a woman on a bike were headed to a motorcycle event at the store when the driver of a car pulled out in front of them and they hit the car. The driver isn't hurt; both people on the bike were taken by Care Flight to Renown. Their conditions are unclear and the crash is still being investigated.

The second crash happened near North Carson Street and Medical Parkway. The Nevada Highway Patrol says it appears a motorcyclist made a u-turn in front of other traffic and collided with a vehicle. That crash is also still being investigated, and the extent of the victim's injuries hasn't been released.
