CLYDE HILL, Wash. (Metro) -- Two motorcyclists are in the hospital with serious injuries, after crashing their high-performance bikes not once, but twice overnight.
A third rider also crashed, but was not seriously hurt.
Washington State troopers tell komonews.com alcohol and high speed may have been factors in the accidents.
The first incident happened around 12:30 a.m., when one of the three bikers skidded and crashed while riding with the other two on the Highway 520 bridge.
He crawled onto the back of one of the other motorcycles for a ride to the hospital.

Arriving troopers and medics found the two motorcyclists riding together unconscious on the roadside.
The third biker was conscious, sitting next to his damaged bike.
All three may face vehicular assault charges.
