SUN CITY CENTER (FOX 13) -

Two deputies and a motorcyclist were rushed from the scene of an accident on southbound I-75, just north of Sun City Center, after the motorcyclist hit them during a traffic stop.

The sheriff's office says the deputies, identified as Chris Davis and Steve Launikitis, had stopped another motorcycle.

The second motorcyclist failed to realize traffic was slowing down and hit the deputies.

The person who had been pulled over did not suffer any injuries.

However, Davis and Launikitis suffered serious, non-life threatening injuries, as did the motorcyclist who hit them.

Crews have cleared the scene and traffic is moving smoothly now on the interstate.
