The incident happened at approximately 3:20 p.m. MT just south of Highway 1. 

RCMP say witnesses told them a motorcycle was merging onto the southbound lane of Highway 22 from Highway 1 when it came into contact with a sedan travelling southbound on Highway 22.

The lone rider of the motorcycle was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. 

A woman and infant from the southbound car were also taken to hospital but their injuries are believed to be minor.
