Brad Wilson, 33 of Drumheller was killed on Sunday evening when a car making a left hand turn onto Highway 2, north of the Aldersyde overpass, crashed into his bike.
The accident occurred at around 6:30 p.m., at the intersection of Highway 2 and 338 Avenue. A man driving a 2002 Acura was attempting to cross Highway 2, eastbound. Witnesses say he came to a complete stop to allow southbound traffic to clear the intersection and then he proceeded to the meridian where he didn’t see the Wilson’s motorcycle and proceeded onto the highway. The motorcycle struck the side of the car as the car travelled into the path of the motorcycle.
Brad Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Neither the driver of the car nor his passenger were injured in the accident. The investigation is into the crash ongoing. Okotoks RCMP are asking anyone who may have witnessed the accident to contact them at (403) 938-4202. Police do not believe alcohol nor speed to be factors in this crash.
Northbound traffic on Highway 2 was restricted to one lane for about 4 hours on Sunday evening to allow for a collision reconstructionist to investigate the scene.
