HANFORD — Two off-road vehicles collided Wednesday morning on Flint Avenue, leaving two drivers with minor injuries, officials said.
“This should be a reminder that these types of vehicles should not be on the road,” said Officer John Tyler, a spokesman for the CHP’s Hanford office.
Tyler said at around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, officers received a call that a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle and a dirt bike had collided on Flint Avenue near North Douty Street.
Both vehicles were traveling westbound on Flint Avenue when they collided for unknown reasons, Tyler said. He said both drivers, a 23-year-old male and a 21-year-old male, sustained minor injuries and were taken to Adventist Medical Center in Hanford to be treated.
Off-road vehicles should only be driven on private property or on the shoulders of the road, Tyler said. He said driving off-road vehicles on the roadway is a violation of the vehicle code.
Tyler said drugs or alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision, but the incident will be investigated further.
