Man killed, woman injured in TCH crash

A 61-year-old man died in hospital last Saturday of injuries he sustained in a motorcycle crash on the Trans-Canada Highway near Ladysmith the previous Tuesday.

RCMP South Island Traffic Services continues to investigate the crash. Preliminary findings indicate that the 2015 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was southbound when it collided with a Subaru station wagon that was stopped at the intersection of the highway and Oyster Sto’Lo Road.

A 61-year-old female who was a passenger on the motorcycle remains in hospital with serious injuries. The BC Coroners Service will release the identity of the deceased man "at the appropriate time." RCMP said that the name of the female passenger will not be released.

Anyone who witnessed the crash should call South Island Traffic Services at 250-416-0352.
