A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a crash on Sunday evening.

Kelowna RCMP responded Nov. 28 at approximately 7:20 p.m. to a two-vehicle crash on Highway 33 at Gerstmar Road in Kelowna, according to a press release. 

An orange Honda motorcycle travelling westbound on Highway 33 allegedly struck the rear end of a grey sedan as it waited to make a left hand turn onto Gerstmar Road.

The 26-year-old male operator of the motorcycle was thrown from the bike and was transported to hospital by B.C. Emergency Health Services with what are believed to be serious, potentially life-threatening injuries.

“This collision is still under investigation, but speed is believed to have been a factor,” says Sgt. Mark Booth of the Kelowna RCMP Traffic Section. “If you witnessed this collision but haven’t spoken to the police yet, we ask that you contact us at 250-762-3300.”
