— Two motorcycles collided with a Cadillac at Oakdale Road and County Center Court on Monday evening.

The motorcyclists were heading south on Oakdale about 5:30 when the driver of the Cadillac traveling north made a left turn in front of them, according to Modesto police. Police are investigating whether speed was a factor, anyone ran a red light or the Cadillac driver failed to yield.
