Two people are in the hospital following a Sunday evening motorcycle accident.

It happened around 5:00 p.m. near mile marker 132 between Casey and Marshall, Ill. on I-70. The back tire of the bike blew out, sending the driver and passenger off the bike and onto the median.

The female passenger was taken to Union Hospital, and the male passenger was taken to another hospital by helicopter. Police say they don't know if either person was wearing a helmet.
