Members of the North River Fire Department examine the two motorcycles invloved in an accident on the Kingston Road Sunday.

A 55-year-old P.E.I. man suffered head and spinal injuries after a single motorcycle crash in the Kingston area Sunday night.

That crash eventually led to the arrest of two other people for drunk driving.

At around 4:50 p.m. the RCMP responded to a single motorcycle crash on Route 235 after the driver lost control when his motorcycle went off the road onto the shoulder.

He was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance and later transferred to Halifax.

The RCMP say they are considering alcohol as a contributing factor in the crash.

While the RCMP were investigating the motorcycle accident they arrested the victim’s riding partner and charged him with drunk driving.

The 52-year-old man from the Cornwall area has been released from custody and has a court date scheduled for October.

About five hours after the motorcycle crash, the RCMP arrested a 49-year-old man from the Clyde River area after he allegedly drove through the investigation scene at a high speed.

The RCMP pulled him over a short distance away and charged him with drunk driving.

He is also scheduled to appear in court in October.

    How many people close to you have been injured or killed by impaired driving? How many have died or been injured because of war? So really, what does the enemy look like?

      The enemy looks like your next door neighbour, the guys at the office, your hairdresser, or your childs best friend! There is no age that is at blame, no social standing,,,,and something need to be done!!!

    "When will they ever learn"... it still amazes me that people believe that there will come a day when no one drinks and drives, or even hope that that day will come. Sure making the penalties more severe will deter some people, but there will be plenty to whom the penalties won't matter. Stop blaming the "Justice system", even if you were to be sent to jail forever for driving while impaired it would still happen. Could it be in part to the way alcohol makes you feel and act? Nooo not alcohol!

    Why will they stop drinking and driving and killing when all they do is a little over a year in prison. Justice system is a joke a slap in the face for the victims and their famalies.
