A 22-year-old Okotoks man is dead after a motorcycle crash, two kilometres north of Champion.
Vulcan RCMP were called out to the scene around 9:00 PM, Saturday night, at the intersection of Highway 529 and Highway 23.
Mounties say the motorcycle was headed eastbound on Highway 529, and then failed to stop at the sign. It struck the rear end of a passing pickup truck, which was hauling a boat at the time.
The driver of the truck, along with two passengers, were uninjured in the crash, but the motorcyclist was killed.
Investigators say while alcohol is not believed to have played a role in the collision, speed is. (scb)
