Police continue to investigate a motorcycle collision that occurred in Halifax earlier this week.
On July 18 at approximately 4:30 p.m. officers responded to a report that a motorcycle had collided with a transport truck and trailer on Dunbrack Street near the exit ramps to Highway 102.
The motorcyclist, a 17-year-old-youth, was taken to hospital where he later died from his injuries. Our thoughts are with the youth’s family, and everyone impacted by this tragic incident.
