PRINCE GEORGE, BC: The Prince George RCMP remain on scene of a single vehicle motorcycle collision that occurred early this morning.
At approximately 5:00 AM on Friday July 6th, 2018, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a collision involving a motorcycle near the intersection of Highway 97 and 22nd Avenue in Prince George.
General Duty officers arrived and found an adult female, conscious but suffering from unknown injuries. Officers administered first aid until paramedics arrived. She was transported to hospital for treatment of serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
Investigators believe that the female was a passenger on the motorcycle when the collision occurred. An unknown adult male and the female were traveling south bound on Highway 97 at a high rate of speed when the driver failed to negotiate the corner.
The motorcycle and riders left the road, traveling a considerable distance into the west side ditch (off road right) between the highway and Westwood Drive. The male fled the area on foot and left the female behind where she waited for hours to be found.
The motorcycle was not registered or insured. Alcohol may have also been a factor. The motorcycle is described as a green Kawasaki Ninja street bike. No description of the male has been obtained yet.
The Prince George RCMP is looking to identify the male rider of this motorcycle and would like to speak to anyone that may have seen this motorcycle in the early hours of the morning.
