Motorcycle season is well underway, and a deadly weekend crash has Coquitlam R.C.M.P. reminding motorists to be extra cautious.
Groups of teenagers have been congregating at the intersection of Pinetree Way and David Avenue since a Saturday night crash took the life of a friend.
Mounties say the 17-year-old on a motorcycle was killed there, when his bike collided with a vehicle making a left-hand turn.
Investigators say drugs and alcohol were not involved, but it is a reminder for drivers to be more aware of motorcyclists and for those on bikes to exercise extreme caution.
Memorial fund set up for teen
It is little comfort for friends and family of the dead teen, identified on social media as Pinetree Secondary student James Vo.
The twelfth grader was taken a month before he would have graduated from high school.
A GoFundMe page has also been set up to raise money for a memorial fund for Vo.
