Rain was a contributing role in a single-motorcycle crash at a Circle Drive overpass on Friday, according to the Saskatoon Police Service (SPS).
At 5:08 p.m., a 68-year-old man rolled his 1985 Honda Goldwing motorbike on its side at the Circle Drive East flyover at Highway 11. Members of the accident analyst team were dispatched.
The biker was traveling east in the right lane of Circle, nearing the cloverleaf junction, when the operator locked up his front brake and laid the bike on its left side, according to SPS evidence.
The operator became dislodged from the bike and slid into the left lane, according to a press release.
He was taken to Royal University Hospital and last reported to be in stable condition with a collapsed lung and head injury.
SPS said impairment was not a factor in the crash.
Eastbound traffic restrictions on Circle Drive have been lifted.
