Elyria - Two people are critical and one in serious condition after a car and motorcycle collided on Middle Ave and 9th Street this afternoon.

Michael Thomas said he was sitting on 9th Street at Middle when he saw the car and motorcycle coming towards him. "The bike was following the car and as they got closer the bike started to go around the car - trying to pass on the passenger side of the car."

Thomas said the car was in the right lane closest to the curb when the bike tried to pass. "As the bike tried to pass he popped it - sped up- then the car tried to turn right onto 9th street and they collided."

The bike went off the road and onto the sidewalk in front of Liberty Gas. The bike struck two pedestrians and Lorain County Transit bus bench before coming to rest almost a block from the collision.

Witnesses say that the bike caught fire but that was put out before Police arrived.

LifeCare Paramedics treated the driver of the bike and the two pedestrians at the scene then transported all 3 to Elyria Memorial. Two left the scene critical and one serious. At least one was flown from Elyria to Metro.

Police still have the northbound lanes of Middle Ave blocked between 9th and 8th while they investigate the crash.
