One person was airlifted to hospital as a precaution after crashing her dirt bike on a narrow dirt access road along the Seine River diversion north of Landmark Tuesday afternoon.

The individual, a female in her late teens from Ile des Chenes, was discovered conscious and wearing a helmet by two children passing by on an ATV, but couldn’t remember the circumstances of the crash, said Lorette district fire chief Rene Gougeon.

A rut may have caused her to lose control of the red dirt bike as she commuted home from work, Gougeon said.

Cpl. Pierre Demers of the St Pierre RCMP said alcohol was not a factor.

A STARS air ambulance departed at 3:10 p.m. from the scene, about one kilometre north of Landmark off Provincial Road 206.

Update Wed. 9:30 a.m. - Adds details from St Pierre RCMP.
