Life-threat­en­ing in­juries in mo­tor­cy­cle col­li­sion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A 68-year-old man from Laval, Que., was trans­ported to hos­pi­tal with life-threat­en­ing in­juries after the mo­tor­cyle he was driv­ing col­lided with a small car in Kings County Mon­day.

The crash on Route 2 in the area of Rollo Bay was re­ported to the Kings District RCMP about 1 p.m. Mon­day.

A 63-year-old fe­male pas­sen­ger of the mo­tor­cy­cle, also from Laval, was taken to hos­pi­tal with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries. The car’s driver and lone oc­cu­pant, an On­tario res­i­dent, was not in­jured.

RCMP Sgt. Chris Gunn said a col­li­sion an­a­lyst was at the scene Mon­day af­ter­noon, with RCMP also de­ploy­ing a drone to as­sist the an­a­lyst.

It’s un­clear whether charges will be laid from the in­ci­dent.

“We’re right at the start of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, so I can’t say,” said Gunn.

Is­land EMS and the Souris Fire Depart­ment also re­sponded to the col­li­sion.

Gunn thanked the pub­lic for pa­tience dur­ing the road clo­sure, which lasted sev­eral hours. “At this time the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing, and our thoughts are with all per­sons in­volved in the col­li­sion,” the RCMP said.
