A motorcycle hit a ditch on July 19 in the Eholt area at about 1 p.m., say Grand Forks RCMP.

“Police were called to single-vehicle motorcycle accident on Highway 3 by Eholt,” Cpl. Richard Lanz said. “The motorcycle was towing a small trailer behind it and it appears that, possibly, the trailer went off the paved portion of the road, which caused the motorcycle to lose control and go off the road into the ditch, striking a rock.”

Lanz said injuries were sustained but were not life threatening and added that there wasn’t any additional information currently available.
