Two persons were transported to an area hospital after separate accidents that occurred at the intersection of Purpera and Airline Highway in Gonzales shortly before noon Thursday.

The two vehicles pictured collided in the intersection and one driver was transported to an area hospital. Moments later a motorcyclist caught up in the traffic caused by the first wreck ran into a car in front of it and the driver was thrown from the bike onto the trunk of the car.

Authorities said the injuries in both accidents were non-life threatening.

Gonzales City Police worked the motorcycle accident which occurred within city limits, and the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office worked the two-car accident on the other side of the road in the parish.
