The Saanich Police Traffic Safety Unit and Detective Division have made advancements in their investigation involving a serious collision involving a motorcyclist and pickup truck on September 30, 2019, in the 4000 Block of Prospect Lake Rd. Tragically, the male driver of the motorcycle died at the scene.
From our investigation to date it would appear that the manner in which the motorcycle was being driven and the mechanical condition of that motorcycle are the principle contributing factors in the crash. It is unfortunate that another driver was involved. The actions of that driver do not factor into the cause and we thank that driver for their cooperation and assistance.
While our investigation continues, the focus is not criminal and charges are not being considered. Road conditions are not being considered as factors in this specific crash.
“Our condolences are extended to the family, friends and all those involved,” stated D/Sgt. Kowalewich.
