A motorcycle rider was injured in Hinesville Sunday night after colliding with a car.
Hinesville Police Department Sgt. Mike Gosseck said the woman who was driving the vehicle struck the motorcycle in front of the McDonald’s on E.G. Miles Parkway.
After the vehicle struck the motorcycle, the woman and her passenger ran onto McDowell Street, where they were found hiding in a backyard.

Both women were arrested.
