Hamilton man pronounced dead after overnight motorcycle crash
Police are investigating a fatal overnight collision in Hamilton.
Shortly after 1:00 a.m. today (Monday, August 3), police say a motorcycle travelling southbound on West 5th lost control just past Brantdale Avenue.
“The rider, a 21-year-old male from Hamilton, was operating a 2006 Honda motorcycle. When the rider lost control he mounted the curb and made contact with a pole,” police said.
The male sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead.
The intersection, which was closed for several hours for the investigation, has since reopened.
The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing to investigate and has ruled out speed and impairment as factors in this collision.
