A car and motorcycle collided in front of the Subway in Hope at about 3:45 p.m. today, injuring three people.

The car, a dark gray Chevrolet Malibu, careened into the front of the restaurant after the collision.

Cheryl Hendrickson, the Subway store manager, said she and an employee were the only two people in the restaurant when the accident happened.

She did not see the collision between the motorcycle and Malibu, but, "I saw him (the car) jump the curb," she said.

"I said, 'he's not going to stop, he's not going to stop,' she said.

The car then hit the glass of the front of the restaurant, she said. Neither Hendrickson nor the employee were injured.

Two people inside the car were transported by ambulance to the hospital. A toddler that was also in the car was not believed to be injured.

Lifeline helicopter was transporting the motorcyclist from the scene at about 4:25 p.m.
