On June 16, 2019 just after 3:00 pm Huntsville OPP were investigating a collision on Britannia Rd in Huntsville. The vehicle required a tow truck, and while they were in the process of taking out the vehicle from the ditch, on a curve in the road, officers heard a dirt bike making its way down Britannia Road. The dirt bike came around the corner at a high rate of speed narrowly missing the back of the tow truck.
Huntsville OPP would like to remind parents to talk to their children about the rules of the road when driving dirt bikes. This is a great hobby for a lot of young people, but taking it to the road can lead to charges, and in this case could have had a more serious outcome. The motor bike driver did take off from the area, and police were not able to locate him.
