Two vehicles and a motorcycle were involved in a crash on Highway 10 just west of Prescott Sunday afternoon, June 24.

According to the State Patrol, a vehicle on eastbound Highway 10 was stopped and waiting to turn into the beach parking lot at Point Douglas Park. The vehicle was rear-ended by another eastbound vehicle and was pushed into the path of a westbound motorcycle. The motorcycle crashed into the car that had been waiting to turn.

Three occupants in the vehicle that was rear-ended reported non-life-threatening injuries, as did the driver of the motorcycle. The driver who rear-ended the vehicle waiting to turn was cited for inattentive driving.

The crash occurred at 5:05 p.m.
