A young Saanich woman turned into the path of a motorcycle Friday afternoon, sending the two people on the bike to hospital with injuries.

The 18-year-old was turning left from Shelbourne Street onto McRae Avenue around 4 p.m., but her car struck a motorcycle travelling southbound on Shelbourne.

Saanich police Sgt. Scott Treble said the 63-year-old rider and his 69-year-old passenger “were both forcibly ejected and they slid along the roadway.” The motorcycle driver sustained serious leg and lower body injuries, while his passenger sustained bruises and other injuries.

The 18-year-old car driver sustained only minor head injuries.

Police issued her a ticket for failing to yield while making a left turn, citing her inexperience and inattention as contributing factors in the crash.
