QUILCENE, Wash. (AP) - Three people were killed in two motorcycle crashes over the weekend on Highway 101 in Western Washington.

The Washington State Patrol says two motorcycles collided head-on Sunday afternoon on a curve on the highway south of Quilcene. Both riders were ejected and 26-year-old Nicholas H. Montague of Lacey died at the scene. The other rider, 45-year-old Rodney T. Sutherland of Port Hadlock, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

In a crash Saturday afternoon, two people were riding a motorcycle that collided with an oncoming vehicle on the highway north of Shelton. The crash killed Michael A. Hanson, 48, of Graham, and Connie L. Shook, 50 of Spanaway.
