UPDATE: Salmo motorcyclist sent to Kelowna hospital after collision with SUV
On May 26, the Trail and Greater District Detachment RCMP responded to a report of a collision between a motorcycle and SUV vehicle on Columbia Gardens Road, in Fruitvale (see previous coverage here), according to Trail RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.
“The 44-year-old motorcyclist had allegedly crossed the center line of the roadway and collided with the SUV being driven by a 57-year-old male,” Wicentowich said. “The motorcyclist was taken to the Kelowna General Hospital, in Kelowna, to be treated for his injuries. His status is currently unknown.
“The RCMP continue to investigate this matter to determine what factors lead the motorcycle to allegedly crossing the centre line of the roadway and hit the SUV.”
Wicentowich said the motorcyclist was from Salmo and the motorist was from Trail. Police are waiting to speak to the motorcyclist when he is released from hospital.
