MOUNT MELLICK - RCMP believe two individuals suffered only minor injuries after a motorcycle collision here yesterday.
A motorcycle collision caused the Trans-Canada Highway to shut down for approximately half an hour Sunday.
RCMP and Island EMS responded to the single vehicle collision shortly after 5 p.m.
RCMP Cpl. Martin Roy said traffic in front of the motorcycle had been slowing down when the collision occurred.
The two individuals riding on the motorcycle, a husband and wife couple, both ended up on the ground after sliding a distance with the bike.
“I think he lost his brakes and then lost control of the bike,” said Roy, during an interview with The Guardian.
RCMP believe the injuries suffered by the two were not life-threatening.
Roy said both were conscious and transported to hospital by Island EMS.
The bike saw minor damage, while no other vehicles were involved.
Roy said there would likely be no charges laid in the incident.
