CUMBERLAND COUNTY, TN – Two motorcycle riders were injured in a multi-vehicle crash in Cumberland County. According to 1057 News, the incident happened Thursday on Highway 70 North.

Tennessee state troopers said 26-year-old Richard T. Hodgin was operating a Honda motorcycle when he tried to pass a Kawasaki motorcycle and another vehicle.  When Hodgin re-entered his lane, he struck the Kawasaki, driven by 46-year-old Greg Horn. Horn went into a ditch, while Hodgin then struck the other vehicle, went off the road and crashed into a tree. Hodgin and Horn, both of Crossville, were hospitalized but no details were released on the extent of the injuries.  The other driver involved was not injured.

Troopers say charges are pending in the case.
