A 19-year-old motorcyclist was transported to hospital by LifeFlight after a collision in Cambridge Sunday.

Officers, along with EHS and Waterville Volunteer Fire Department responded at 3:00 p.m. July 19 to a collision involving a motorcycle and truck towing a trailer on Cambridge Road.

Police say the truck was traveling north when a motorcycle entered the road, and although the driver of the truck swerved, he was not able to avoid a collision.

RCMP say the 19-year-old motorcyclist was thrown from the bike and was transported to hospital via LifeFlight with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The truck and trailer caught fire immediately after the collision and police say the 20-year-old Brookfield man driving the truck was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Cambridge Road was closed for several hours while first responders and an RCMP Collision Analyst were on scene.

The road re-opened just before 10:00 p.m. and the investigation into the collision is ongoing.
