4th fatal motorcycle crash in Alberta leaves 2 dead, 1 in hospital
Two more motorcyclists have died after the fourth motorcycle crash in Alberta on the weekend.
A motorcycle drove into an SUV crossing Highway 16 at Highway 830 just east of Edmonton at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday.
Strathcona RCMP believe the northbound SUV stopped at the stop sign, but continued into the intersection and the path of the eastbound motorcycle.
The 53-year-old man driving the motorcycle died at the scene while his female passenger, 51, was taken to hospital, where she died a short time later.
The couple lived in Strathcona County, police said.
The 75-year-old woman driving the SUV had serious injuries.
Alcohol does not appear to have been involved, police said.
RCMP ask anyone who witnessed the crash to call them at 780-467-7741.
Three other motorcyclists have died over the weekend across Alberta including a 30-year-old woman killed Saturday on the Yellowhead Trail in Edmonton.
In southern Alberta, a man in his 50s was killed near Strathmore, while another man died near Lethbridge.
