POLICE – Woman killed when motorcycle strikes curb at Home Depot

A rider lost her life Wednesday night when her motorcycle hit the curb at the entrance to Home Depot.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Michel Grondin said the 60-year-old Kamloops woman appears to have lost control of the motorcycle as she was north bound on Hillside Drive about 8:30 p.m. and tried to make a left-hand turn into the entrance to the store.

She suffered fatal injuries when she was ejected from the motorcycle as it hit the curb. Emergency services tried to revive her but she was pronounced dead on the scene.

Kamloops RCMP and B.C. Coroner services are investigating. The identity of the woman is being withheld pending notification of her family.
