A person is dead after a fatal motorcycle crash in the Shuswap over the weekend.
The collision happened Saturday at about 8:20 p.m. in the 300 block of Salmon River Road.
"The operator of the motorcycle died at the scene of the crash despite life-saving efforts by bystanders, Fire Personnel and Provincial Ambulance personnel," says S/Sgt. Scott West.
Mounties indicate their investigation showed the motorcycle rider failed to negotiate a ninety-degree left-hand turn while travelling north and left the roadway.
RCMP believes speed is the cause of this tragic single-vehicle collision.
