Motorcyclist hits big rig

A motorcyclist was killed in a head-on collision with a tractor trailer unit Tuesday.

On April 30, at approximately 3:40 p.m., Sicamous RCMP and emergency services received a report of a collision on Highway 1 near Cambie Solsqua Road in Malakwa.

“Upon arrival it was determined that an east-bound motorcycle with a lone rider crossed the centre line and collided head-on with a west bound transport truck,” said Cpl. Mike Halskov.

“The motorcycle rider, a 53-year-old woman from the local area, died at the scene from her injuries. The truck driver was not injured. Highway 1 was closed for a number of hours while police investigated.”

The cause of the collision remains under investigation. 

“At this time, criminality did not play a role in the cause of this crash,” said Halskov.

Anyone with information regarding this collision who has yet to speak with police is asked to call 250-344-2221, and quote file 2019-1958.
