One of two motorcycle accidents in the North Okanagan remains under investigation by RCMP.
Shortly after 4 p.m., police and ambulance were called to the 4900 block of Bella Vista Road.
“A motorcycle was eastbound on Bella Vista Road when the operator appeared to lose control,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.
The 55-year-old male driver, from Vernon, was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with serious and possibly life-threatening injuries.
That incident remains under investigation.
Earlier in the day, another motorcycle eastbound on Highway 6 lost control going around a corner and ended up in a field near Aberdeen Road.
The 62-year-old male operator was taken to VJH with minor injuries and his bike suffered minimal damage.
Speed was not a factor in the accident and no charges are pending in the case.
In both instances, the motorcyclists were wearing helmets.
