The Bow Island Fire Department was dispatched to a serious motor vehicle collision east of Bow Island just before 6 p.m. on Oct. 25.

A motorcyclist was travelling westbound on Highway 3 and collided with an eastbound semi-truck, resulting in the fatality of the rider.

The fatal accident resulted in the highway closure between Range Road 93 and Highway 885.

“It wasn’t a pleasant site,” said Bow Island Fire Chief Kelly Byam.

A dozen crew members were on scene at the accident.

The last six firefighters wrapped up at the accident at 3:30 a.m. Saturday.
