WEST PUBNICO -- Two people were injured as a result of a single-vehicle collision involving a motorcycle on Highway 335 in West Pubnico.

Yarmouth Rural RCMP were called to the scene just before 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 26.

Both men sustained non-life threatening injuries and required transport to hospital by ambulance.
