A 62-year-old woman died Sunday in a single vehicle accident on Riverside Drive.

She was the passenger on a three-wheel motorcycle. The driver, a 62-year-old man, was later transported off-Island for treatment of serious but non life-threatening injuries, said Charlottetown Police.

Police said the motorcycle was travelling east on Riverside Drive Sunday afternoon when it appears to have struck a curb and then a light pole.

A section of Riverside Drive was closed until about 7 p.m. so a collision reconstructionist could begin an investigation. That investigation is ongoing.
