At approximately 7:30 p.m., on July 7, 2014, Okotoks RCMP, High River Traffic Services, Okotoks Fire Department, and Foothills Regional Emergency Services responded to a call for service. Witnesses advised that an Eastbound 2007, grey Honda Odyssey van driven by a 48 year old female crossed into the Southbound lanes of Hwy II into the path of a 1999 Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by a 30 year old male. The motorcycle was unable to avoid collision with the van, and the motorcycle driver died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.

The investigation is ongoing, and charges are being considered. Weather was not considered to be a factor in the collision, nor is speed or alcohol.

Identities of those involved have not been released pending notification of next of kin.

Witnesses to the collision are asked to contact Okotoks RCMP at their earliest convenience.
