A 50-year-old Alberta man has died after colliding with a pick-up truck near New Denver Monday morning (9:20 a.m.), according to RCMP Sgt. John Ferguson.
“The Slocan Detachment and the West Kootenay Traffic Services attended a two vehicle motor vehicle fatal collision on Hwy 31A approximately 10 kilometers east of New Denver,” Ferguson said. “A lone motorcycle rider while in a curve encroached into an oncoming lane and collided with a pickup truck.
“A 50-year-old male from Alberta was pronounced deceased at the scene.
“At this time the name is being withheld by the BC Coroners Service until next of kin is notified.
“Alcohol is not a factor in this crash.
“This is the time for the roads to be busy with all traffic, especially motorcycles, and police would caution all drivers to slow down, be attentive so they will arrive at their destination safely.”
