Three motorcycle riders are recovering from their injuries after they were hit by a car at 30th and Emerson just after midnight Friday.

Witnesses say the traffic light at the intersection had just turned green when a pair of motorcycles, one with an extra passenger, were hit from behind by another vehicle.

One of the motorcycle riders caught fire when his bike burst into flames.  Another rider suffered neck injuries, and a third person suffered a broken leg.

Police have not identified the victims, one of whom was described in critical condition when he was taken to the hospital.

Police are talking with the driver of the vehicle this morning.

A FACT team was called to investigate.
