The California Highway Patrol is investigating a crash in Burlingame that left two people on a motorcycle seriously injured on Sunday night, an officer said.
The crash was reported on southbound Interstate Highway 280 near Trousdale Drive at about 8:30 p.m., CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
According to preliminary information, a male driver and a female passenger were on a motorcycle that rear-ended a Toyota Prius in the southbound lanes, Montiel said.
Both people were ejected from the motorcycle and taken to Stanford Hospital with major injuries, he said. No one else was injured and investigators are trying to determine what caused the collision, Montiel said.
Various lanes on Highway 280 were closed for more than two hours Sunday while the crash scene was cleared. Anyone who might have witnessed the incident is asked to contact the CHP's Redwood City office at (650) 369-6261.
