Motorcycle towed after crash with pickup Monday

West Shore RCMP say motorcycles need to ride in the travel lane, not the shoulder

A large pickup truck hit a 50CC light speed motorcycle travelling on the shoulder of Wale Road on Monday. The truck was making a legal left turn onto Gamble Drive around 5 p.m.

“The truck needs to be responsible for what they can see and the 50 CC motorcycle should have been travelling in a proper vehicle lane,” said Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz.


Neither driver reported injuries.  The motorcycle needed to be towed.
