I come baring some sad news this evening. Roughly an hour ago, a fatal accident has occurred at the corner of 104 St & 58 Ave here in Edmonton between a motorcycle and a street sweeper. Please deter from using this intersection at all costs. 104 Street SB is closed off due to police activity and for investigative purposes.

One man has died, and a woman is in critical condition. No names have been released yet, and will not be made public until the proper steps have been taken in ensuring the family has been notified.

I take this sad news tonight to remind everyone that motorcycles are back on our roads with the beautiful weather we’ve been lucky to experience. Let’s please keep a close eye on our motorcycle riders. It takes extra caution and precaution to know what is around you at all times. Please drive & ride safe out there.

To the rider of the motorcycle in question, may you rest in peace, and to the family and friends of our fellow rider, my deepest and utmost condolences.

    My heart goes out to the family and friends of the poor man who lost his life and my prayers go to his passenger and her family.

    I also feel terrible for the street sweeper who had just started his shift, was just there doing his job (he was paying attention to the road and his surroundings) He did nothing wrong in this terrible accident but it will no doubt haunt him for the rest of his life

      Very well said, Rod. I did not hear much about the street sweeper, and I too, feel bad for what he was involved in. Thank you for your comment in this regard.

      Condolences to the friends and family of Marcus Pullock and the woman who was hospitalized in critical condition.

      The post was updated above with a photo that shows a group of motorbike riders who came together to show support for Marcus.
