Port biker hurt in dirt bike accident

  • Aug. 22, 2007 8:00 a.m.

A Port Clements teenager was medevaced to Prince Rupert after a dirt bike accident over the weekend. Masset RCMP Cpl. Bob Isaacs said police received a report from a witness Sunday evening that a dirt bike had gone over the bridge and into the Hiellen River. The 19-year-old dirt bike driver drove himself to hospital, Cpl. Isaacs said, where he was diagnosed with back and neck injuries and a broken wrist, and medevacced to Rupert. Police are continuing to investigate the accident. The Masset detachment was busy with a couple of other events over the weekend, Cpl. Issacs said. A 39-year-old Old Massett resident reported that he had been assaulted by two people on Friday. Police are continuing to investigate as the victim was slightly intoxicated when he made the report. Police are also looking for two large speakers which were reported stolen Saturday afternoon from a vehicle parked on Eagle Avenue in Old Massett. The vehicle window was open, Cpl. Isaacs said. A Masset resident reported his vehicle stolen on Friday evening, but called back a few hours later to say that he had found it. “I think it was more or less misplaced,” Cpl. Isaacs said.
