EDMONTON -- A 25-year-old motorcyclist was taken to hospital with serious injuries after a collision with a U-Haul truck.

It happened Saturday afternoon on Manning Drive at 137 Avenue.

The driver of the truck, a 45-year-old man, did not suffer any injuries.

Drivers were asked to avoid the area for several hours, but it has since reopened.  


Edmonton police previously identified the driver of the motorcycle involved as a 28-year-old man, later issuing an update correcting his age to 25. They also upgraded his injuries sustained in the crash to serious, after previously stating they were non-life threatening. Our copy has been updated to reflect those corrections.
