A 62-year-old man from the RM of Springfield was sent to hospital Sunday after wiping out on his motorcycle.

The crash happened at around 4 p.m. on Provicinal Road 313 at Channel Drive near Pinawa Bay in the RM of Alexander.

RCMP say the driver was travelling behind another vehicle that was slowing down to turn. As the vehicle slowed, the motorcycle decreased its speed as well but hit some loose gravel and the driver was thrown from the bike. The motorcycle didn’t collide with the other vehicle.

STARS air ambulance responded and transported the man to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

RCMP say speed and alcohol aren’t factors in the collision.
