Motorcycle Accident Sends One to Hospital
Prince George, B.C. – One person has been taken to hospital in Prince George following a motorcycle accident on Highway 97, just north of the John Hart Bridge.
At approximately 4:15 pm today police, Fire Rescue and B.C. Ambulance crews responded to a report that a motorcycle had hit a cement abutment on the highway and the force of the impact had sent a passenger over an embankment and into the bushy landing between the highway and the access road that climbs to the highway from the round-a-bout at North Nechako Road and the Cameron Street bridge.
The condition of the injured person is not known. Police continue their investigation and were speaking with eyewitnesses at the scene.
Just 15 minutes before that accident another rider was injured when they dumped their bike at 5th and Carney. The rider was believed suffering from possible rib injuries and road rash.
Not surprised…saw some real idiots on bikes today. Hope this is a wake up call..
Hope all have 100% recovery and have become better riders because of this.
And to the idiot on the crotch rocket that passed me on pulpmill road today doing at least twice the speed limit..slow down and live..lots of deer on the road.
As far as I’m concerned, a crotch rocket bike should be considered a death trap, and kept for track racing only. Only a fool rides like a racer does on the highway.
Uturn, in my neighbourhood, we have young adults ripping around on the streets on their dirt bikes! Idiots come in all forms, shapes and sizes!
What would you say to the majority of Harley riders who ride around wearing not much more than a bottle cap for a helmet?
Uturn, there are fools on cruisers and crotch rockets alike. Just like some drivers in Hondas drive like idiots but not wll of them do. Don’t make the assunption that all riders in sport biked ride like fools…many ride other models too (just like some on either types choose to wear proper gear or not too).
Just like I obviously can’t type well on this bloody iPhone and others do just fine lol
Anyone else ever see the dimwit on the mini crotch rocket, (looks kind of a white color) with a passenger and no lights doing 140k passing on double solids and weaving in and out of traffic between Vanderhoof and PG on hwy 16?
I have seen him on numerous trips along there and don’t understand why he hasn’t had his licence taken away and his pos bike impounded.
Being I live right close to the john hart bridge, I see 20 at least a day are doing well over twice the speed limit going up to the hart off the bridge. This in not just bikes but cars and trucks.
