Couple Hurt in I-86 Motorcycle Crash

A husband and wife from Olean suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle crash Sunday afternoon on Interstate 86 near Belmont.

Police say 58-year-old Edward Mikolajczyk and his 59-year-old wife Susan were merging into the passing lane, but went too far and hit a temporary Department of Transportation road sign, sending the bike into the median.

Two Mercy Flight helicopters used the interstate as a landing zone to pick up the couple and take them to ECMC in Buffalo. Police say although their injuries are serious they are not life-threatening.

No charges have been filed.
