Inglis man dies in crash near Binscarth

  • Print

A 59-year-old Manitoba man died in a head-on collision late Sunday afternoon involving the Harley Davidson motorcycle he was riding and a pick-up truck hauling a camper trailer.

The accident happened on Hwy. 16 just south of Binscarth, Man. at about 5:30 p.m., the RCMP said in a news release.

The northbound 2007 Harley Davidson motorbike crossed the dividing line into oncoming traffic, police said. A pickup truck hauling a camper swerved to avoid the motorbike and hit the ditch. The motorcycle hit the side of the camper trailer and its driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the name of the 59-year-old man from the Inglis, Man. area is not being released. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, police said.

The truck and trailer both overturned and began to burn. The 58-year-old man driving the pickup and his 53-year-old woman passenger, both from Edmonton, were able to escape the truck before it and the trailer were completely destroyed by fire, police said. They were treated at the scene for minor injuries. The accident is still under investigation, police said.
