Officers from Saskatoon's collision investigation unit were on the scene of a fatal crash on Wednesday.

A man has died following a collision on a major Saskatoon thoroughfare early Wednesday evening, police say.

The crash took place on Thatcher Avenue, but police did not provide an exact time.

Investigators, including a collision analyst, were expected to be at the scene for most of the night collecting evidence.

While police did not release any details of the collision, images from the scene suggest a motorcycle was involved.

The name of the deceased, 52, was not released as police were still notifying family.
