On September 11 at approximately 1:30 p.m., a collision occurred on Highway 875 at the intersection of Township road 16-2 involving a tractor and a motorcycle. 
 
Two motorcycles approached a tractor from the rear not realizing that the tractor had slowed to make a left turn.  One motorcycle attempted to pass the tractor and when the rider realized the tractor was turning, laid the bike down and skidded across the pavement in an effort to avoid the collision. The second motorcycle was able to stop in time. 
 
The injured rider, a 32 year old male from Brooks, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was treated in hospital.  The driver of the tractor, a 16 year old male from Tilley, did not suffer any injuries.
 
Although the matter is still under investigation, no charges are expected to be laid.
