SUMMERLAND – The Summerland man seriously injured in a motorcycle crash last weekend has died in hospital.

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says in a media release the 47-year-old man died Wednesday night, April 19, from the injuries he sustained when he crashed his motorcycle at Highway 97 and Bentley Road in Summerland.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon, April 16.

The lone rider of a 2015 Harley Davidson was being treated by B.C. Ambulance personnel when police arrived, Moskaluk says, and taken to Kelowna General Hospital.

Moskaluk says the RCMP are investigating and initial findings indicate speed to be a factor.
