    POCATELLO — Two crashes between automobiles and motorcycles happened in Pocatello between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6:33 p.m. on Friday, with one motorcyclist being seriously injured, according to reports.

    The second motorcycle accident of the day took place near the intersection of Alameda and Jefferson at 6:33 p.m.

    According to witnesses at the scene, one man on the motorcycle received a serious leg injury. Another man was being treated at the scene by first responders, though details as to the man’s role in the accident were not immediately clear.

    The first motorcycle crash Friday happened in the northbound lane of Yellowstone Avenue at the corner of Yellowstone and Griffith after 3 p.m. No one was injured in this accident, which happened when an auto rear-ended a motorcycle as it slowed for the light at Yellowstone and Flandro. The front bumper of the auto was torn off in the accident.

    Within minutes of the second motorcycle accident, another crash, this one involving two autos, was reported less than four blocks away on Filmore Avenue. Details of this accident are still unknown.

    Every time I get on my motorcycle some idiot in a car decides they want to ride my tail. I don't get it. Most of these people would never follow a car within a few feet but have no problem getting a foot off my rear fender. And how about getting off the phone!!!
