KETTLE FALLS, Wash. (June 7, 2019) — A British Columbia man died Tuesday morning June 4th when his motorcycle was struck by a dump truck at the intersection of Highways 20 and 395.

The motorcyclist, 69-year-old David P. Gilbride, of New Westminster, was pronounced dead at the scene about 40 miles south of the U.S.-Canada border.

The driver of the dump truck, Leland J. Williams, 62, of Spokane, WA, was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane with unknown injuries.

The motorcyclist was southbound on U.S. Highway 395, and Williams was traveling northbound at the time of the accident around 9:23 a.m.

As both drivers neared the Highway 20 intersection, the truck crossed the centerline, hitting the motorcycle head-on.

Wreckage was strewn across Highway 395, prompting officials to close the highway to traffic.  Traffic through the intersection was limited throughout the day, with several detours.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation and charges could be pending.
