Vancouver police are investigating the city’s eighth traffic fatality of the year after a motorcyclist was thrown from a bike near Queen Elizabeth Park.
Police say a 27-year-old motorcyclist was heading south on Cambie Street near West 35th Avenue around 1:40 a.m. when he lost control of a red Honda CBR and it struck a curb, throwing him from the bike.
A passerby provided first aid until police and paramedics arrived, but the rider passed away at the scene.
Investigators are into looking into what caused the collision but don’t believe any other vehicles were involved.
Anyone with dashcam video or who saw the motorcycle prior to the collision is asked to call 604-717-3012.
