News Man in hospital after motorcycle crash SHARE ON: Matt Fetinko, staff Tuesday, May. 15th, 2018 One person is in hospital following an incident Tuesday morning. At 7:23am, Quesnel RCMP and North District Traffic Services were called to the scene of a motorcycle crash on Highway 97 about five kilometres south of Hixon. A Suzuki motorcycle was travelling northbound when the driver, and lone rider, lost control and was thrown off the bike. Police do believe speed is a factor. The 23-year-old man was taken to hospital for what is described as “serious injuries”. The highway was closed briefly but has since reopened in both directions. The investigation continues; anyone who may have witnessed the incident are asked to contact North District Traffic Services.
