Two motorcycle riders critically injured after crash

Two motorcycle riders were hospitalized after a crash Friday night on Highway 178.

Authorities say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, which took place just west of the Lower Ride Bar Campground.

Daniel Gonzalez, 42, and Veronica Perez, 41, were hospitalized with major injuries.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Gonzalez was traveling west at about 55 mph when he didn't turn right.

Gonzalez and Perez were launched off the roadway and into the canyon wall, hitting several boulders.
