ROCKBRIDGE CO., Va. -

Four people were taken to the hospital after two motorcycles collided in Rockbridge County Wednesday.

It happened just before 3:00 p.m. along Route 11, near the exit 180 interchange.

State Police say Wayne and Curtina Brown of Roanoke were on a motorcycle approaching a highway work zone when they had to slow down suddenly because they didn't see a flagman who was stopping traffic at that location. A motorcycle driven by Charles Perdue, 61, of Goodview, rear-ended them.

The driver of the motorcycle that was rear-ended was Wayne Brown, 65, of Roanoke. Curtina Brown, 54, of Roanoke was a passenger. Both were taken to Carilion Stonewall Jackson Hospital to be treated for injuries.

Perdue was also taken to Carilion Stonewall Jackson Hospital but his passenger, Diana Perdue, 49, of Roanoke, was airlifted to Carilion Roanoke Memorial for her injuries.

No word on how the four bikers are doing.

Troopers say all of them were wearing a helmet.

No charges have been filed at this time.
