In one accident, an elderly woman entered the bicycle lane near the town of Veyo and struck a bicyclist from behind. In the other accident, a 17-year-old female driver entered the bicycle lane. She realized her mistake, and as she attempted to change lanes into the vehicle lane, she turned in front of a bicyclist, who collided with the vehicle, said Detective Nate Abbott of the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
Both bicyclists were transported to the Dixie Regional Medical Center in unknown conditions, but both are expected to survive, Abbott said.
The driver in one accident received a citation, and the other driver likely will, too, he said.
