MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Northwest Fire District responded to two motorcycle accidents on Saturday morning, according to Captain Adam Goldberg.

The first one happened at 10:22 a.m. on Picture Rocks and Wade Roads. An 82-year-old man was not wearing a helmet and was transported by ambulance to the University of Arizona Medical Center trauma for the injuries he sustained. His motorcycle was the only vehicle involved.

The second motorcycle accident occurred at 11:03 a.m. on Sanders and Avra Valley Roads. A 47-year-old male had to be airlifted by a helicopter to a local hospital after sustaining critical injuries. The man was wearing a helmet at the time of the incident.

There may be traffic restrictions as crews finish the investigation and clear the scene at Sanders and Avra Valley. The picture in the story is related to that accident scene.

We have a crew headed to Sanders and Avra Valley and will have more information in the 5:30 p.m. Saturday newscast.
