A fatal crash involving a motorcycle shut down a highway in Kelowna Thursday afternoon.

The collision happened just before 4 pm at the intersection of Highway 97 and the north end of Old Vernon Road, according to Kelowna RCMP.

An image of the scene shared by Castanet News shows a black tarp set up on the road.

Police said the motorcycle and a pickup truck collided. They did not specify how many people were in each vehicle or how many injuries or fatalities resulted from the crash.

The northbound lanes of Highway 97 were closed as a result of the incident, leading to significant delays as traffic was redirected onto Airport Way, Mounties said.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has dash cam video from the area should contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300, police said.
