TYNE VALLEY- A dirt bike rear ended a car just moments before the Tyne Valley Oyster Festival began early on Saturday afternoon.

Island emergency services were on the scene at the corner of Barlow and Bideford Road in Tyne Valley after a dirt bike rear ended a car near the local rink. A teenger from Ellerslie was driving the dirt bike, and a teenage girl was riding on the back.

The accident caused a slight delay in the annual Tyne Valley parade as it occured just before 1 p.m.

The driver of the bike was transported to Prince County Hospital in Summerside where he was treated for possible head injuries, but for nothing life threatening. The young girl also sustained minor injuries.

RCMP continue to investigate.

Organizations: Prince County Hospital, RCMP

Geographic location: Tyne Valley, Barlow, Bideford Road Summerside

    Piet Hein, you should not respond to idiots like Bruce. They only post their obnoxious comments to elicit a response and they feel it is a badge of honour to piss people off. Pathetic yes, but it is the way these clowns operate. Remember, don't feed the trolls.

      Bruce, I realize you are just a troll, but where in the story does it say anyone was upset at the delay to the parade? There is nothing really lower then a moron like you who spends their jobless days on the web looking for places to post dumb comments hoping to make people think they have something intelligent to say. Please get out more often and get a life.

    ....they need to crack down on off road vehicles, on road....one only needs to ride west of Summerside to see it all. It also seems to be a "western" issue, you , for example, do not find ATVs and Dirt Bikes on the streets of Souris....
