State troopers were looking for the driver of a car that collided with a motorcycle on Interstate 5 in Tacoma late Sunday, sending the bike careening into another motorcycle and leaving both riders injured.

The wreck occurred just before 10:00 p.m. on northbound I-5 near South 72nd Street, troopers said.

All three vehicles were headed north when the car — thought to be a silver car similar to a Honda Accord — hit one of the motorcycles, sending it crashing into the other bike, troopers said. The car continued driving following the collision.

Both motorcycles crashed, injuring a 25-year-old Kent man and a 30-year-old Tacoma man, both of whom were transported to a Tacoma hospital with injuries.
