Wichita Police said six motorcycles were involved in accidents during the Toy Run Sunday. The toy run took motorcyclists from Lawrence Dumont Stadium to the Kansas Pavilions.

Lt. Joe Schroeder said one accident was caused by a rider who stopped in the line to pick up his American Flag that had fallen off of the back of his bike. The crash happened when the rider attempted to get back in line.

Lt. Schroeder said another accident was caused by several factors, including "speed, inexperience, and alcohol."

Three people were hurt. Their injuries are not life threatening.
