A 14 year old Vanderhoof boy was killed on June 1 after a fatal collision between a dirt bike and pickup truck late afternoon on May 31.

According to Vanderhoof RCMP Sergeant Jason Keayes the investigation is still on going.

The North District Traffic Services has been asssisting Vanderhood RCMP with this incident.

A highly specialized reconstruction analyst has been working with this case in its severity.

“A reconstruction analyst came out from Prince George for this investigation,” said Keayes.

“The investigation is still in its infancy.” It would be improper to give a cause to what caused the accident.”

According to online reports, the boy was travelling along Gill Place Road, 30 kilometres east of Vanderhoof when he struck the pickup, operated by a 19 year old boy from the Vanderhoof area.

Sgt. Keayes stresses that motorists wear helmets properly and stay off high traffic roads.

“Public roads are tempting,” says Keayes. “But, that can lead to fatal collisions such as this.”

Police investigators suspect that speed has been a factor in this fatal collision and are asking witnesses or anyone that may know more details to come forward.
