An early morning accident involving a motorcycle and a pickup has injured two people.  It happened just after midnight Wednesday morning in the 2,000 block of Nickerson Blvd.

The Reno County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post that a red Chevrolet S-10 pickup was parked in the westbound lane of Nickerson Blvd. west of the Cow Creek Bridge while the driver was trying to help a friend pull his motorcycle out of the ditch. Deputies said the driver of the westbound motorcycle did not see the truck in time and hit the pickup in front of the driver-side door.

The driver of the motorcycle was thrown several feet from the crash and was transported to a Wichita hospital. 

The driver of the pickup refused medical treatment but was taken to a hospital by relatives.
