Police say speed appears to be a factor in a motorcycle crash involving a 44-year-old Malakwa man in Kelowna.

The man suffered serious injuries Friday night when his Harley Davidson hit a ditch on Highway 33.

On July 13th at 8:15 p.m., Kelowna RCMP received a report of a single-vehicle motorcycle crash on Highway 33, about 8 kilometres south of Joe Rich Road.

The driver had been travelling south when he went off the road on a left-hand curve.

The corner is posted with an advisory speed limit indicating for drivers to reduce their speed by 10km/h.

 

Police say the man was taken to hospital for treatment of  “nearly life-threatening injuries.”
