Police probe motorcycle accidents that kill one man, seriously injure another

HALIFAX — Police say one man was killed and another seriously injured in separate motorcycle accidents in the same Halifax suburb.

They say a 42-year-old man died at about 10 a.m. Wednesday when his motorcycle collided with a pickup truck on Rocky Lake Drive in Waverley.

The driver of the truck was not injured.

Hours later, police say a 20-year-old man apparently lost control of his motorcycle, drove off the road and hit a tree in Waverley.

He was taken to hospital with serious injuries, while an RCMP traffic analyst was brought into examine the scene.

Police are investigating the causes of both accidents.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. Police had earlier stated second biker's age to be 52, when it is 20.
