QUESNEL, BC: A motorcyclist was taken to hospital Thursday morning following a serious head-on crash…
Police say just before 10:30 AM, officers were called to a collision on the Moffat Bridge involving a motorcycle and an SUV.
Investigation has revealed the motorcycle was traveling east on Anderson Drive in the slow lane and passed a garbage truck that was in the fast lane. After the rider passed the truck, he lost control of the motorcycle and collided head-on with the SUV that was travelling west on the bridge deck.
“The bridge was shut down for over an hour as EHS and the Quesnel Fire Department tended to the rider”, said Sgt. Richard Weseen, of the Quesnel RCMP Detachment. “The citizens and visitors of Quesnel were very patient during this time and it was appreciated by the emergency crews on scene.”
The rider of the motorcycle was transported to GR Baker Memorial Hospital in serious condition. The driver of the SUV was not injured.
Speed is believed to be a factor in the investigation. Charges may be pending.
