Cape Breton Post - - Province/ Atlantic -

HAL­I­FAX — Po­lice say one man was killed and an­other se­ri­ously in­jured in sep­a­rate mo­tor­cy­cle ac­ci­dents in the same Hal­i­fax sub­urb. They say a 42-year-old man died at about 10 a.m. Wed­nes­day when his mo­tor­cy­cle col­lided with a pickup truck on Rocky Lake Drive in Waver­ley. The driver of the truck was not in­jured.

Hours later, po­lice say a 20-year-old man ap­par­ently lost con­trol of his mo­tor­cy­cle, drove off the road and hit a tree in Waver­ley.

He was taken to hospi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries, while an RCMP traf­fic an­a­lyst was brought into ex­am­ine the scene.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the causes of both ac­ci­dents.
