ORONDO — Two people were thrown from their motorcycle after crashing into a car on Highway 97/2 near Orondo on Friday. 

Gary Spence, 72, and Roberta Harris, 71, both of Cashmere, were southbound on their 1985 Honda motorcycle when they collided with a stationary Chevy Cobalt turning left at milepost 113, according to a State Patrol news release Saturday.

Both were transported to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, Spence by ambulance and Harris by a medical helicopter, according to the release.

They were wearing helmets but only Harris' met U.S. Department of Transportation standards, State Trooper Jeremy Weber said Sunday.

The four occupants of the Chevy Cobalt, who were all from Tonasket, were uninjured. 

Highway 2/97 reopened about 6:50 p.m.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated one of the motorcyclists, Gary Spence, was not wearing a helmet. Both motorcyclists were wearing helmets, though only Roberta Harris' was compliant with U.S. Department of Transportation standards.
