A man and a woman from the United Kingdom are in serious condition after they crashed their Harley-Davidson into a truck while failing to stop at a stop sign Saturday morning, Metro Police said.

Brian and Ann Lewis, both residents of Sunderland in northeast England, were traveling east on Hacienda Avenue around 9:45 a.m. as they approached Polaris Avenue.

Brian Lewis, 65, was driving the Road King motorcycle; Ann Lewis, 60, was a passenger, according to a Metro investigation.

As they approached the intersection, a Chevrolet truck was stopped at the stop sign in the northbound lane on Polaris. As the truck drove through the intersection, Brian Lewis failed to stop at the stop sign and the motorcycle hit the left side of the truck.

Both Lewises, who were ejected from the motorcycle, were taken to University Medical Center. Brian Lewis is in critical condition; Ann Lewis is in serious condition. The 29-year-old driver of the truck was uninjured.
