Kelowna RCMP is investigating a fatal crash that occurred Monday night in Kelowna.

On July 19th, just after 9:15 p.m. Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a collision at the intersection of Harvey Avenue and Dilworth Drive in Kelowna.

Police say a Toyota car was making a left hand turn from Harvey Avenue into the northbound lanes of Dilworth Drive when it collided with a Harley Davidson motorcycle travelling westbound on Harvey Avenue.

The motorcycle then struck two pedestrians at the northwest corner of the intersection.

The driver of the motorcycle was transported by BC Emergency Health Services with serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.

The two pedestrians, a 13-year-old girl, and a 15-year-old girl, were also transported to hospital for treatment of injuries.

“The 13-year-old pedestrian was treated and has since been released from the hospital,” says Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

“Tragically, the 15-year-old pedestrian succumbed to her injuries a short time later. Our deepest condolences go to her family and friends.”

The scene of the crash was closed for several hours for processing, and investigators are looking for witnesses.

RCMP are also looking for video surveillance in an effort to determine what led to the collision.

“The driver of the car remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation,” says Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP.

“We are asking anyone who witnessed the collision, or has any information, to come forward and speak with us.”

The BC Coroners Service is conducting their own investigation into this death.
