A man in his fifties has lost his life after being ejected from his motorcycle during a road exit to La Durantaye, in the MRC de Bellechasse.
The dark incident occurred while the man was travelling on the street of Piedmont, near the 4th Ist, at 11: 50 a.m., Sunday morning.
In all likelihood, the individual, who was alone on her vehicle, lost control of it for a reason that still remains to be determined. Ensued off the road, and then swerve into a fosset.
“He was transported to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries, but unfortunately, his death was found shortly after,” said the sergeant Louis-Philippe Bibeau, of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
A police officer in investigation-collision has visited the site to establish the circumstances of the event. Expertise mechanics will also be done on the bike over the next few days.
According to Mr. Bibeau, nothing indicates that the individual was driving at high speed or conduct that would violate the highway safety code. A possible discomfort of the driver is one of the few hypotheses raised by the SQ to explain the exit from the road.
