It may not be an insult, but police added charges to injury yesterday when they ticketed a motorcyclist as being responsible for the crash that sent him to hospital.
Police say that the motorcyclist, a 34-year-old Brandon man, was taken to hospital with significant but non-life threatening injuries to his lower body after the crash, during the noon hour on Monday.
He was apparently headed southbound on 18th Street when he made a left turn onto Louise Avenue, heading east. However, he entered the path of a car travelling north in the curb lane of 18th Street, and they crashed.
The motorcylist has been charged with failing to yield the right-of-way when making a left turn.
