A motorcycle driver from Hants County has been airlifted to hospital after a car in front of him stopped to allow a family of ducks to cross the road, say Nova Scotia RCMP.

RCMP Const. Kelli Gaudet says a black car yielded to the ducks along Highway 101 near Wolfville around 9:45 a.m. on Thursday. A Kia Rio stopped for that black car, and it was rear-ended by the motorcycle driver.

The motorcycle driver, an Upper Rawdon man in his 60s, was transported to hospital via LifeFlight with serious injuries. The driver of the car was not hurt.

Police are still looking for the driver of the black car.

RCMP expect Highway 101 between Exits 10 and 11 to be shut down for several hours in both directions while they investigate.
