Update: Two people taken to hospital after car vs. motorcycle wreck

From the Tyler Police Department:

TYLER, TX (KLTV)-At 5:18pm on August 22, 2013, Tyler 911 received a call about a traffic crash at the intersection of Loop 323 at Donnybrook.  The callers indicated a motorcycle vs. car crash had occurred and that the motorcycle rider was injured.  Officers arrived at the scene 3 minutes later.

Investigation revealed Tony Peters, from Flint, was operating a Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on the loop.  Scott Plummer, of Tyler, was operating a Dodge Caravan eastbound on the loop in the inside lane. 

Tony Peters appears to have failed to yield right-of-way and turned into the path of Scott Plummer to go south on Donnybrook.  Tony Peters was thrown onto the hood of Scott Plummer's vehicle and sustained non-life threatening injuries.  Scott Plummer was also injured in the crash. 

Both Tony Peters and Scott Plummer were transported to the hospital for treatment.  Both individuals are expected to be treated and released from ETMC.

Eastbound traffic on the loop was forced to use the outside lane for several minutes until the scene could be cleared.
