Three motorcyclists have been killed and two injured in two separate crashes on British Columbia roads in just over 24 hours.
A couple from Sexsmith, Alta., died Sunday night in a crash near Dawson Creek, in northeastern B.C.
Dawson Creek RCMP say the 57-year-old man and his 48-year-old female passenger veered into the path of an oncoming Ford F-350 pickup truck towing a livestock trailer.
A second motorcycle skidded out of control and slid to a stop near the wreckage, but police say the man and woman on that bike are expected to recover from their injuries.
And in southeastern B.C., a motorcyclist died early Tuesday morning after losing control of his machine while riding through the City of Nelson.
Both deadly crashes remain under investigation and no names have been released.
