A 52-year-old motorcyclist and his 51-year-old female passenger have been hospitalized after the rider lost control and went off the Trans-Canada Highway near the Enchanted Forest on Sunday.

The crash happened on Sunday, May 29 just after noon about 30 kilometres west of Revelstoke.

The pair were riding westbound on a Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 when the rider lost control in a downhill ‘S-curve’ stretch of the road. RCMP investigators believe he misjudged the curve, veered into gravel on the shoulder of the road, lost control and then crashed into the ditch.

Revelstoke RCMP say the pair suffered what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. They were taken to hospital in Salmon Arm for treatment.

Both individuals are Vernon, B.C. residents. No charges were laid in the incident.
