A 58-year-old Sturgeon County man was taken to hospital after crashing his motorcycle at a St. Albert intersection on Monday.
St. Albert RCMP were called to the collision at Campbell Road and Boudreau Road at about 10:15 a.m.
Investigators determined that a man was driving a Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound on Campbell Road when the accident happened. The man was heading toward the Boudreau intersection when he allegedly leaned the bike over into a skid. Police report that the man rolled the motorcyle before his body collided with a VW Jetta driven by a 20-year-old St. Albert woman.
The Jetta had been waiting at a red light to turn east onto Boudreau Road. After the light turned green, the woman pulled into the middle of the intersection before stopping.
"The motorcycle continued without any passenger and crossed the intersection, the boulevard and collided with a southbound tractor trailer unit,” police said in a statement on Monday.
Passing motorists stopped to help the injured man while waiting for emergency services to arrive.
The St. Albert woman driving the Jetta was not hurt. Neither was the 47-year-old Edmonton man behind the wheel of the tractor trailer.
The motorcycle driver was taken to the University of Alberta Hospital where he was listed in stable condition.
Road conditions at the intersection were clear and dry at the time of the incident. Police do not suspect alcohol or other drugs were factors in the collision.
The investigation is continuing.
