KAMLOOPS - A woman is dead after a motorcycle crash near the Home Depot on Hillside Drive last night.

Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Michael Grondin says in a release the 60-year-old driver appeared to have lost control of her vehicle around 8:30 p.m. She failed to negotiate a left hand turn into the entrance of the Home Depot. 

"The woman was ejected from the motorcycle when it collided with the curb, and she suffered fatal injuries. Emergency services attempted to revive the unconscious female who was eventually pronounced dead at scene," Grondin said.

Kamloops RCMP and B.C. Coroner services are investigating the matter. She was not identified by authorities at this time.
