May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in Alberta, and just hours after the release of a media statement by the Alberta RCMP, the Stettler RCMP was on Hwy. 12 at the scene of a fatal collision.

On Tuesday evening, May 2 at 7 p.m. approximately, Stettler EMS, Regional Fire Department and RCMP attended the scene of a single vehicle MVC involving a motorcycle East of Erskine on Hwy. 12.

The motorcycle, which was travelling eastbound on Hwy. 12 failed to negotiate a curve, and went into the ditch on the south side of the road, causing the motorcycle to flip.

Passing motorists noticed the motorcycle in the ditch and provided aid and any assistance they could until emergency crews arrived.

The 57-year-old male operator succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident is still under investigation, and at this time, it does not appear that alcohol was a factor in this collision.

Any witnesses to the collision are encouraged to contact the Stettler RCMP at 403-742-3382.
