Our Traffic Section continues to investigate a single-vehicle collision involving a motorcycle that left a man in his 60s with serious injuries.

At approximately 9:10 p.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2023, a collision occurred in the 600 block of Hunterston Crescent N.W.

At the time, it is believed a 62-year-old motorcyclist, was riding a 2008 Harley-Davidson, travelling east on Hunterston Road N.W., approaching the intersection of Hunterston Crescent N.W., which has a slight downhill slope.

As the motorcyclist approached the intersection, he locked the rear wheel of the motorcycle and it slid for approximately 20 metres. The motorcyclist lost control and the motorcycle fell onto its right side, dislodging the motorcyclist.
