A motorcyclist is in hospital and facing multiple charges after an apparent race ended in a crash with a parked car in Halifax.
The 33-year-old motorcyclist was on Young Avenue in Halifax at about 6:45 p.m. Tuesday. He had a woman passenger. Witnesses say he began racing a car, but the race ended when he drove into a parked car near Point Pleasant Park.
“The small white vehicle continued on without stopping,” said Staff Sgt Reid McCoombs.
The motorcycle driver was taken to hospital. The woman was not injured. Once treated for several broken bones, the driver was told he faces five charges, including:
- Driving with another licence plate.
- Driving with no insurance.
If convicted, the fines could total almost $5,000.
Police are looking for the car he was allegedly racing. It’s a white Mitsubishi with an unusual feature — the steering wheel is on the right-hand side, indicating the car is from abroad.
