The truck sideswiped two motorcycles, injuring those riders. It then crashed head-on into three more motorcycles.

A motorcyclist who was at the front of the group was not hit.

The Powell Tribune reports ( ) the two people who were injured were flown by helicopter to a hospital in Billings, Montana.

Investigators have not released the names of anyone involved.
