“One of the motorcycle operators turned unexpectedly in front of the other motorcycle causing a collision between the two motorcycles,” said Gervais in a news release.

The other motorcycle operator, a 33-year-old male, did not have serious injuries and was transported to hospital for treatment of “road rash.”

The South East District RCMP Traffic Analyst and BC Coroner are involved in the investigation. Gervais said the report will determine if any charges are being considered. The name of motorcyclist that died at the hospital has not been released.
