PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Traffic was backed up Friday morning on Highway 17 after some bails of hay caused two motorcycles to wipe out.

Al and Melinda Taylor were driving their motorcycles when several bails of hay got away from a truck.

The Taylor's tried to avoid the sudden road blocks, but both spilled on the bikes.

The couple was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries and is expected to be okay.

The driver of the truck will be charged with failure to secure a load.
