60-year-old Normand Charlebois, from St-Clet, Quebec, has been identified as the victim of a fatal motorcycle collision in East Hawkesbury over the long weekend.
On Saturday afternoon, September 1, at approximately 4:15 p.m., OPP officers, Prescott-Russell paramedics and the East Hakesbury Fire Department, responded to a motorcycle collision on County Road 4, between Des Erables Street and Golf Road in East Hawkesbury.
A motorcycle with a single male rider was travelling eastbound on Front Road when it failed to complete a curve and went into a ditch. The motorcycle then struck a driveway embankment before coming to a stop. The rider, Charlebois, died of his injuries at the scene.
Front Road East was closed to traffic from Tupper Street and Golf Road for most of the day and re-opened at 9 p.m. on Saturday. The OPP Technical Trafic Collision Investigators (TTCI) was also present at the scene to assist with the investigation.
