A motorcyclist was lucky to escape with relatively minor injuries Friday morning after his bike left the road and flipped over in a ditch on Beaumont Hamel Way in the Galway area of St. John’s.
The incident happened about 11 a.m., just east of Costco and left the male driver lying on a bed of gravel in the ditch.
An official at the scene said it was lucky he landed in the ditch where he did, just missing a pile of large rocks nearby.
The man was lifted from the ditch by first responders and placed on a stretcher to be taken to hospital by ambulance.
The RNC is investigating.
