A former long time resident of Fort St. John has died in a motorcycle accident near Bear Lake.

The Prince George RCMP received a call Thursday morning at approximately 7:40 from a motorist who had found a motorcycle 25km north of Bear Lake on Highway 97. Once the RCMP arrived they were able to locate the driver of the motorcycle a short distance away from the motorcycle.

At this time the RCMP believes the driver failed to negotiate a corner but are still investigating the cause of the accident. The RCMP need the public’s help to determine just what happened as they believe the accident occured well before the RCMP was called. There is no indication that road conditions were a factor in the accident.
