CORNELIA - Two motorcyclists were hurt just before noon Thursday when their bikes collided with a minivan near Cornelia.

Trooper 1st Class Jesse Lewis said a 2008 Toyota Sienna driven by 47-year-old Joy Elrod of Cleveland was stopped at the stop sign on the offramp from Georgia 365 southbound onto Georgia 105 attempting to turn left.

As she attempted to turn left, Elrod pulled into the path of two motorcycles that were traveling eastbound on Georgia 105 toward the new Walmart, Lewis said.

A 2005 Harley-Davidson driven by 43-year-old Randy Farmer of Alto struck the van, throwing Farmer from the motorcycle, Lewis said.

A 1993 Suzuki Intruder driven by 42-year-old William Watts of Clarkesville then struck the van, throwing Watts from the motorcycle and into the van's windshield, Lewis said.

Farmer complained of abdomen and other pain and was taken by ambulance to Habersham Medical Center, Lewis said. Watts suffered road rash and a possible dislocated shoulder and also was transported for treatment.

Neither Elrod nor a passenger in the van were hurt, Lewis said.
