A 64-year-old man is dead after the motorcycle he was operating crashed on Saturday night along Marine Way.
According to Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid, the accident occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m. as the red Ducati motorcycle was going eastbound toward the Queensborough Bridge. According to two witnesses who were in the vicinity of the crash, the motorcyclist appeared to just drive off the road and no other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Reid said the man was operating the motorcycle with a temporary permit.
The motorcyclist was rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital, but he did not survive his injuries from the crash.
"We're hoping someone may have seen him along Marine Way before the accident and we are still looking for more witnesses," said Reid. "If you have any information, please contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922."
Police had not released the name of the man as of Tuesday morning.
