Motorcycle and bus collide in Rutland

Man injured when motorcycle collides with bus

A man was sent to hospital with injuries after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a transit bus late Sunday night in Rutland.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of a collision May 7 at 10:04 p.m., between a BC Transit bus and a motorcycle at the intersection of Springfield Road and Hollywood Road South.

“Emergency services crews responded to the scene, where preliminary reports indicate that the motorcyclist may have merged onto Springfield Road directly in front of the bus when the two collided,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

“BC Ambulance crews assessed the motorcyclist at the scene and later transported him to hospital for treatment of what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. The bus driver and the six passengers on the bus were relatively uninjured.”

RCMP continue to investigate the crash as they work to determine all causal factors and ask any witnesses to come forward. Police have not yet ruled out alcohol as a potential contributing factor on behalf of the motorcyclist.

If you witnessed this crash and have not yet spoken to police you are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
