Calgary Police are investigating whether speed and alcohol were factors in a fatal motorcycle crash Friday morning.
Just after 1 o’clock police were called to the 1200 block of Memorial Drive N.W.
They say the driver of a Honda Motorcycle headed east on Memorial lost control entering a bend in the road.
The 23 year old man was thrown from the bike and struck a tree in the median, while the motorcycle continued along Memorial and eventually slid into a nearby roadway.
The driver died from his injuries at the scene. His name has not been released.
