Col­li­sion re­sults in the death of mo­tor­cy­clist in Med­ford

Valley Journal Advertiser - - NEWS -

A man and a dog were killed in a col­li­sion in the Med­ford area April 24.

A 66-year-old Cen­tre­ville man was rid­ing his mo­tor­cy­cle north­east on Med­ford Road around 3:30 p.m., say the Kings District RCMP, when he struck and killed a dog that came from a nearby res­i­dence.

The man sus­tained se­vere in­juries, ac­cord­ing to Cpl. Jen­nifer Clarke.

Paramedics at­tended the scene and trans­ported the man to hospi­tal, where he was later pro­nounced de­ceased.

The RCMP were as­sisted at the scene by mem­bers of the Can­ning Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment. An RCMP col­li­sion re­con­struc­tion­ist also at­tended the scene and the road was closed for sev­eral hours.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing, Clarke said.

“Our thoughts are with the vic­tim’s fam­ily and friends at this dif­fi­cult time.”
