Bloom Township, PA – A DuBois couple had to be flown from the scene of a motorcycle crash in Clearfield County yesterday.

56-year-old Randy Chicola and 55-year-old Diane Chicola from DuBois had been riding on a Harley-Davidson FLHT on Route 219 (Chestnut Grove Highway) in Bloom Township around 3:15 Monday afternoon.

The motorcycle’s back tire failed, causing them to lose control and crash into an embankment.

The pair were thrown from the motorcycle and landed in the other lane.

Neither Randy nor Diane Chicola had been wearing a helmet.

They both sustained significant injuries to their head and neck.

Both were flown from the scene by STAT MedEvac to UPMC Altoona.
