DeLuna was moderately injured and was transported to Ozarks Medical Center in West Plains by South Howell County Ambulance, according to the report.
Gulley was wearing a seatbelt, and DeLuna was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, the report says. The Caravan sustained moderate damage and was driven from the scene. The sport bike, a total loss, was towed from the scene.
