Motorcyclist injured after car stopped for ducks on highway in Nova Scotia

A motorcyclist was seriously injured after he crashed into a car that had stopped on a Nova Scotia highway to let a family of ducks cross the road.

The man was taken by helicopter for treatment and now investigators are looking for the driver of the car that stopped for the ducks.

The accident happened on Highway 101 near Wolfville Thursday.

Police say a car stopped on Highway 101 near Wolfville, N.S., around 9:45 a.m. as the ducklings made their way across the busy road. Another car stopped behind it and was rear-ended by the motorcyclist. The car that stopped for the ducks left the scene.

They’re asking for the public’s help in locating the driver.

In Montreal five years ago, Emma Czornobaj, 26, stopped her car and helped a family of duck cross a highway. That led to tragic and fatal consequences when a motorcyclist Andre Roy, 50 and his 16-year-old daughter, a passenger on the bike, crashed into the back of Czornobaj’s stopped car. Czornobaj was given jail time and a 10 year ban from driving.

On a happier note, last month, a Calgary cab driver picked up a family of ducks and took them to safety in the backseat of his cab.
