Police determined the motorcycle was northbound on the highway when it crossed the centre line and collided with a large commercial farm vehicle travelling southbound on the highway.

“Sadly, the 58-year-old female motorcyclist sustained significant injuries and was declared deceased at the scene,” media relations officer Const. Chris Terleski said.

The highway was closed in both directions for around three hours while crews completed their work.
