A traffic incident in Qualicum Beach resulted in a motorcyclist being airlifted to the hospital.
“On Saturday, Aug. 22 at 1:48 p.m., the Oceanside RCMP were called to reports of a collision involving a motorcycle at Kinkade Road and Island Highway West in Qualicum beach,” said Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Jesse Foreman. “A northbound 2008 Harley Davidson Motorcycle being operated by a 63-year-old Qualicum Beach resident lost control and crossed the centerline after coming across traffic that had stopped for the lead vehicle in the line to turn.”
The driver then left his motorcycle and struck his head on the pavement. Although he was wearing a helmet, he was unconscious and subsequently airlifted to Victoria General Hospital.
“We do not have an update as to his condition,” said Foreman. “No other vehicles were involved in this collision.”
