The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

The OPP con­tinue to search for the owner of an air mat­tress that caused a fa­tal crash in Wel­land last month. Sgt. Kerry Sch­midt says some mo­tor­cy­cles were rid­ing along Hwy 406 in Wel­land when they en­coun­tered an in­flated air mat­tress ly­ing on the road that had fallen off a ve­hi­cle. He said the lead mo­tor­cy­cle veered around it, but a sec­ond got tan­gled in the air mat­tress and crashed. A 55-year-old rider from Fort Erie died of his in­juries, and three other peo­ple were injured. Sch­midt says po­lice have tracked down the store that sold the mat­tress, and asks who­ever lost it to come for­ward.
