Police are looking for anyone who may have witnessed a crash between a car and a motorcycle that left a Kelowna man with potentially life-threatening injuries.

Emergency services responded to reports of a motorcycle involved incident at around 1:44 p.m., Oct. 2 in the 3800 block of Gordon Drive.

Police believe that a southbound blue Honda motorcycle collided with the rear of a red Kia Sorrento, which had also been traveling southbound on Gordon Drive.
