BORDEN-CARLETON – RCMP are investigating the cause of a single motorcycle collision here Sunday night that sent a woman to hospital with injuries.
RCMP, Borden-Carleton Fire Department and Island EMS responded to the collision on Dickie Road at approximately 7:45 p.m.
Cpl. Steve MacDonald said the rider was on a straight stretch heading from Rte. 10 towards the Confederation Bridge when the motorcycle left the road.
The driver was a woman in her mid-to-late 40s and from the Bedeque area, said RCMP.
RCMP said they didn’t want to speculate on the woman’s injuries. She was coherent when emergency responders got to the scene but was taken by Island EMS on a backboard.
MacDonald said RCMP are continuing to investigate what caused the collision.
“It seems kind of unexplained as to why she went off the road. It was a straight stretch of road,” he said. “Speed doesn’t seem to be a factor, alcohol doesn’t seem to be a factor. Whether it was a malfunction with the bike or not, we’re not really sure yet.”
The scene was cleared by 8:30 p.m.
