Pedestrians and drivers jumped in to help an injured motorcyclist after a crash this weekend.

The 29-year-old Whitehorse man was taken to hospital. So far police have not released his name or the extent of his injuries.

On Sunday at about 12:45 p.m., Whitehorse RCMP were called to a crash near the intersection of Hamilton Boulevard and Falcon Drive.

A 1998 Honda CBR600 was travelling south on Hamilton Boulevard towards the Hamilton Extension when it collided with a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado making a left turn from Falcon Drive, investigators say.

“The area of the collision was widely populated by other motorists and pedestrians walking on the multipurpose trail, many of whom provided emergency medical care to the motorcyclist prior to the arrival of first responders,” according to a police press release.

Whitehorse RCMP and the traffic services division are still investigating the crash.  Alcohol is not a factor, they say. 

“While the cause of this incident is still under investigation, police wish to remind motorists that with summer driving season upon us, drivers need to slow down, and obey road signs for the safety of all road users.”
