Cochrane RCMP are investigating an accident involving two motorcycles on Highway A1, west of Morley Road.
Mounties believe that the two motorcyclists were travelling together when one lost control and went off the road — ejecting the rider some distance.
The second motorcyclist saw this, hit the brakes, lost control and hit a guard rail.
He suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to Foothills Hospital.
The first motorcyclist’s injuries are non-life threatening.
