A motorcyclist suffered non-life threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle in Campbell River Monday afternoon.
The RCMP say the collision happened when the motorcyclist had just turned onto Hilchey Road from Dogwood Street.
A vehicle then turned left into Timberline Village in front of the motorcycle resulting in the crash.
“This is yet another case of a vehicle turning left in front of a motorcycle,” said Cst. Sarah Clark of Campbell River RCMP
“It happens all too often, and due to the nature of the collision the motorcyclist rarely has time to react and hits the vehicle at fairly high speed, often resulting in serious injury or death.”
The rider was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the vehicle was not injured and remained on scene.
We would like to remind the public to ensure they are taking the time to clear the lane before making a turn,” said Cst. Clark.
Give yourself time to properly gauge the speed of the vehicle before committing to entering their lane.”
