Two people were in critical condition Saturday after a motorcycle crash downtown. 

Police said a man and a woman were thrown from a motorcycle after “there was contact” with an SUV near Jefferson Boulevard and Webster Street. Emergency crews were called to the area around 4:15 p.m.

Two of the three lanes of Jefferson Boulevard were closed as a result of the accident, and police said the exact cause of the contact is unclear. Witnesses were being interviewed to establish what happened.

The man and the woman were taken to the hospital in serious condition but were downgraded to critical, Fort Wayne Police Department spokesman Mark Bieker said in a news release.

The driver of the SUV was uninjured.
