Police are looking for anyone who may have witnessed a crash between a car and a motorcycle that left a Kelowna man with potentially life-threatening injuries.

Emergency services responded to reports of a motorcycle involved incident at around 1:44 p.m., Oct. 2 in the 3800 block of Gordon Drive.

Police believe that a southbound blue Honda motorcycle collided with the rear of a red Kia Sorrento, which had also been traveling southbound on Gordon Drive.

The motorcyclist, a 61-year-old Kelowna man, was rushed to hospital in stable condition. Mounties say he is  suffering from serious, perhaps life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Kia, a 62-year-old West Kelowna woman, and her passengers were all uninjured in the crash. She remained at the scene and fully co-operated with the police investigation.

“RCMP are turning to the public and urging potential independent third party witnesses to this crash to come forward,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey in a press release.

“At this time police are only able to rely on the information that can be provided by the occupants of both vehicles involved.”
