ELMSDALE, N.S. - An investigation into an injury, following a collision on Highway 2 near a construction zone, has been referred by East Hants District RCMP to the Nova Scotia Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT).
At 9:41 p.m. on May 11, an RCMP member on patrol observed a two-wheeled, off-road vehicle without lights on Hwy 2 near the Hwy 214 intersection with a driver and a passenger.
The passenger was not wearing a helmet, RCMP said in a press release.
The vehicle entered a controlled construction zone, travelled past the flag person and continued against the flow of traffic.
Police activated their emergency lights as the driver lost control of the vehicle and collided into a stationary vehicle. The passenger, a male youth, then fled on foot and was located a short time later behind a nearby building with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver, a male youth, incurred only minor injuries.
Given the matter is now being investigated by SiRT, the RCMP is unable to discuss further details about the collision.
