Two people were injured early this morning when a suspected drunken driver tipped his motorcycle in Tacoma.

The accident happened about 12:40 a.m. in the 1100 block of Dock Street.

Police said two “motorcycle enthusiasts” met two women from out of town and offered them a ride. While driving down Dock Street, the 30-year-old driver lost control and tipped the bike over.

He was taken to St. Joseph Hospital with head trauma. His 28-year-old passenger suffered a possible broken bone.
