Three men riding motorcycles together wiped out simultaneously in Peach County on Saturday because they were going too fast to make a curve in the road.
Cpl. Elbert Slappy of the Georgia State Patrol said the accident happened shortly before 2 p.m. on Ga. 42.
James Shoemake, 25, of Warner Robins, Reginald Carrington, 37, of Kathleen, and Christopher Sandifer, 31, of Indianapolis, were heading west when they came upon a bend in the road just before the Crawford County line.
All three motorcycles left the road and one traveled 267 feet before it came to a rest. None of the motorcycles collided with any of the others.
Shoemake, Carrington and Sandifer were all transported to The Medical Center of Central Georgia with injuries, Slappy said. He did not know the extent of their injuries. All three were wearing helmets.
On Sunday Slappy said the three motorcyclists would be charged with traveling too fast for conditions.
Each was riding a Japanese high-performance motorcycle.
“They were probably traveling 90 plus,” Slappy said.
