Morning Crash Sends Motorcyclist To Hospital

Medicine Hat Emergency personnel responded to the accident just before 7:30 Tuesday morning on the Trans Canada Highway

A motorcyclist is in hospital following a crash Tuesday morning on the Trans Canada Highway.  Medicine Hat Police along with fire and EMS personnel got the call just before 7:30 Tuesday morning after the motorcycle clipped the back end of a car and lost control.  The bike then hit the curb at a high rate of speed seriously injuring the operator who was airlifted by STARS helicopter to a Calgary Hospital.  Witnesses to the crash reported the motorcycle was driving aggressively through westbound traffic prior to the accident.  The MHPS Traffic Unit continues to investigate but say excessive speed was certainly a contributing factor.  ~~  Warren Affleck
