It was not immediately known which of the two motorcycle riders — a male driver, female passenger — was the more seriously hurt.
“The rider suffered major injuries and is being transported,” Officer Josh Greengard of the California Highway Patrol said.
The crash happened shortly before 4 p.m. on Three Points Road and Highway 138, east of Gorman.
Paramedics with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to reports of a traffic collision at 3:59 p.m. and arrived at the crash site at 4:21 p.m.
