Collision results in the death of motorcyclist in Medford
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.”
