UPDATE: Motorcyclist was in his own lane when fatal accident happened

Mission RCMP investigating a collision between a pick-up truck and a motorcycle on Sylvester Road

UPDATE:

The motorcyclist killed in an accident on Sylvester Road in Mission on Sunday was traveling in his own lane.

Early on in the investigation, Mission RCMP said it “appears the motorcycle crossed into the oncoming lane colliding with a pick-up truck.”

However, as the investigation continued, it has been established that the motorcyclist was in his own lane.

“As the investigation was in its initial stages, it now appears that, in fact, the motorcycle was within its own lane,” said Mission RCMP Staff Sgt. Steve Crawford.

ORIGINAL STORY:

One person is dead following a motor vehicle accident in Mission this morning.

Mission RCMP along with ICARS are investigating a fatal motor vehicle accident between a motorcycle and a pick-up truck that occurred in the 9200 block of Sylvester Road this morning.

Mission RCMP Staff Sgt. Steve Crawford said “as of 12:30 pm investigators are still on scene and at this point it appears the motorcycle crossed into the oncoming lane colliding with a pick-up truck around 10:15 am this morning.”

He also added “there are no indications at this time of alcohol or drugs being a factor, and the driver of the pick-up remained at scene, as did witnesses who are assisting in the investigation.”

Sylvester Rd remains closed until further notice to allow for a full and proper investigation to determine the cause of the collision, and the BC Coroners Service has been advised.
