The Nelson Daily staff
An 18-year-old Mount Sentinel student is reported to be in serious, but stable condition at the Trail Regional Hospital following a highway accident west of the junction at South Slocan near Shoreacres Thursday morning.
Michael Reinhart was cycling on Highway 3A when he somehow left the shoulder of the highway and collided almost head-on with a car driven by an 19-year-old man from Nelson that was heading toward Castlegar.
The early morning accident tied up rush hour traffic for more than an hour while paramedics attended the accident scene.
RCMP continue to investigate the accident. They say that speed or alcohol were not factors in the incident.
