A motorcyclist was found dead after a collision on Highway 3, approximately six kilometres east of Osoyoos.
RCMP said the 73-year-old Chilliwack man was travelling east on Highway 3 when he failed to negotiate a sharp curve and went over an embankment.
“The male was found deceased by his family who were looking for him after he departed for a ride from their vacation accommodations earlier in the evening and failed to return,” said Const. James Grandy in a news release, adding RCMP were called to the scene with assistance from the Anarchist Fire Department at 1:09 a.m.
Grandy said the matter has been turned over to the B.C. Coroners Service and that Osoyoos RCMP extend their sympathy to the man’s family and friends.
