Motorcyclist killed in Kelowna accident

A 22-year-old Kelowna man was killed in a two vehicle collision that occurred Tuesday afternoon in front of the Okanagan College campus on KLO Road.

Police say a westbound Suzuki motorcycle was traveling in the left-hand lane of KLO Road close to 3:30 p.m. when it collided with an eastbound VW Cabriolet making a left hand turn into the OK parking lot.

The Suzuki went into a skid and hit the ground prior to impact with the car.

The motorcyclist sustained life threatening injuries and was transported to Kelowna General Hospital where he later died.

Police are still investigating the accident, but they indicate that speed appears to have been a factor in the collision.
