A car forced a motorcycle to lose control and crash into a median on Route 11 in Howland.

The accident happened around 4:15 p.m. on Route 11 near the Route 82 interchange.

The driver of a Chevrolet Cobalt was traveling north on Route 11 and attempted to merge into the left lane to exit onto Route 82. The Cobalt forced a motorcycle, that was traveling in the left lane, into the grassy median to avoid being hit by the car. The motorcycle lost control and crashed, injuring the driver and passenger.

Both victims were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Cobalt was not injured and was charged with improper lane change.
