A motorcyclist injured in a collision last week in O’Leary that has left a teenaged pedestrian in critical condition has been released from hospital.

RCMP Cpl. Nick Doyle says the motorcyclist, a 22-year-old man, was released from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Tuesday. Doyle did not know the extent of the motorcyclist’s injuries.

Ryan MacKinnon, 15, of O’Leary was airlifted to hospital in Halifax after being struck by a motorcycle after 11 p.m. on Aug. 6 while MacKinnon was walking along Main Street in O’Leary.

The teen is in critical but stable condition and has undergone several major surgeries, his hockey coach told The Guardian Thursday.

Close to $33,000 had been donated to an online fundraising campaign in support of Ryan as of Friday morning.

Doyle says no charges have been laid in connection to the tragic collision, but adds the investigation is ongoing.

“We have not spoken to the driver of the motorcycle," he adds.
