Police have determined that a blue 2016 Nissan Rogue was turning left onto Weston Road when it was suddenly struck by a black Honda CR12 motorcycle.

The driver of the Nissan Rogue, a 66-year-old Kelowna woman, was shaken however not injured in this crash.

“The motorcyclist, a 26-year-old Kelowna man, was rushed to hospital in stable condition suffering from what police describe as serious believed to be non-life threatening injuries,” said Const.
