MEDICINE HAT, AB – A 33-year-old man from Calgary has been airlifted to hospital following a crash along the Trans-Canada Highway on Tuesday morning.

According to Medicine Hat Police, just before 7:30 am a motorcyclist was reported by witnesses as riding aggressively and at a high rate of speed westbound in the Kin Coulee dip.

The motorcyclist was unable to react to traffic stopped at the 16th Street SW intersection and struck the back of a slow-moving car.

It was at that point the operator tumbled into the shoulder and had to be transported to hospital in Calgary by STARS Air Ambulance, where he is listed in serious condition.

Westbound traffic of the Trans-Canada was limited to a single lane for most of the morning commute, and was opened shortly after 9:00 am by police.

Police say it’s still too early to tell if charges will be laid against the motorcyclist.
