One man is dead following an accident involving a motorcycle and dump truck on Highway 97 and Lloyd Road Saturday morning.
RCMP Constable Bob Charron says the truck was making a left turn off Loyd onto the Highway.
The lane was clear, and according to witnesses, as he proceeded into the intersection the southbound motorcycle appeared from behind traffic and accelerated toward the intersection.
The cycle attempted to avoid the accident, but hit the truck just below the driver's side door.
The driver of the truck was visibly shaken, and had to be assisted to a waiting ambulance. He was taken to KGH.
