Motorcyclist taken to hospital with undetermined injuries after crash in Oak Bay

Two-vehicle collision occurred Tuesday morning shortly before 11 a.m.

A motorcycle was one of two vehicles involved in a crash Tuesday shortly before 11 a.m. in Oak Bay.

A bike and car collided on Oak Bay Avenue at the Elgin Road intersection, with significant impact visible to the passenger door of the vehicle, a late model sedan.

The motorcycle driver was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and what is believed to be a broken collar bone, said Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties of Oak Bay Police.

Police issued the driver of the sedan with a ticket for driving without consideration. It’s a $196 fine that comes with six points on a driver’s ICBC record.
