The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating a passenger vehicle versus motorcycles crash that sent five people to area hospitals, four with critical injuries.

Trooper Gray Gibson is in charge of the investigation.

According to Gibson, charges could be filed.

Bradley County 911 reports noted the crash occurred at 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

A passenger vehicle reportedly crossed the centerline on Frontage Road, near Falcon Crest in the 8800 block.

The vehicle then struck one motorcycle head-on, and sideswiped the other one, according to Gibson.

Bradley County Emergency Medical Service paramedics responded ambulances to the scene, according to reports.

Two LifeForce helicopters were dispatched to a site in Falcon Crest and airlifted two of the cyclists to Erlanger Medical Center. Two others were transported to SkyRidge Medical Center for treatment and another was taken to Erlanger Medical Center via ambulance. Bradley County Sheriff’s Office and Bradley County Fire and Rescue personnel assisted at the scene.

Names of the injured haven’t been released as the investigations continues, according to Gibson.

n Bradley County Sheriff’s Office officials were alerted of the theft of an HVAC system and a water heater.

According to a report filed by deputy Tim Robinson, Debbie McClaskey, who is a representative of Wells-Fargo, reported the theft from a foreclosed property located on Red Clay Road.

A 3-ton air unit and a forced-air furnace system along with a 40-gallon water heater was missing.

The actual date the property went missing was not known.

McClaskey reported the incident in early February and confirmed late last week that the company wasn’t able to provide serial numbers.

The missing HVAC system and water heater was valued at $1,750.

According to the United States Geological Survey, the 2.8 quake was centered three miles outside the city of Englewood, and 29 miles northeast of Cleveland.
