A 33-year-old man from the Lower Mainland is dead after a motorcycle accident near Parksville.
Constable Monika Terragni with Oceanside RCMP says it happened on the Island Highway in the Nanoose Flats area.
“It looks like the motorcycle had been travelling southbound towards Nanaimo and the driver; it looks like he lost control,” said Terragni.
She says they don’t know yet whether speed was a factor.
The accident is being investigated by the Central Island Traffic Services.
