Motorcycle collision fatality on Highway 103

At 10:18 p.m. last evening a motorcyclist who was travelling at the front of a group of three other riders collided with a deer. The group was travelling West on Highway 103 near Exit 5A. The rider was thrown from the motorcycle and despite the efforts of first responders and bystanders to resuscitate him, the 49-year-old Alberta man died at the scene. One other rider in the group sustained minor injuries.

The highway was closed in the area and traffic was diverted for several hours as an RCMP Collision Analyst examined the scene. The road was re-opened shortly before 6 a.m.

The investigation is ongoing.
