A 56 year-old man died in a motorcycle accident on July 18, 20 kilometres north of Beaver Creek. The man left the roadway and crashed into the ditch. He was towing a trailer at the time of the accident.

According to Beaver Creek RCMP detachment, the man wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

The man had just crossed the Canadian border but hadn’t reached the border crossing point, Cpl. Rob Moring said.

“It’s possible he thought he was still in Alaska where it’s not illegal (not to wear a helmet)”, he said.

Paramedics treated the man, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, RCMP said.

The incident is being investigated by the RCMP and the Yukon coroner’s office. The RCMP won’t release the man’s name, citing a new privacy policy being applied across the country.
