Winnipeg police are appealing to the public in helping to locate two people who fled the scene of a fatal motorcycle crash last Saturday.
The two-vehicle collision happened at around 2:15 p.m. when the westbound motorcycle was travelling on Portage Avenue and collided with a northbound van on Home Street.
Bystanders rushed to help the motorcycle driver, but he later died from his injuries in hospital. Friends and coworkers have identified him as Matt Cave, a father of two.
The 40-year-old had worked security at the Marion Hotel on Marion Street for the past 10 years.
The driver and passenger in the van took off on foot and police haven’t been able to locate them.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash or events immediately after to contact them at (204) 986-7085. Anyone that may have images or video of the incident is asked to send them to [email protected].
A vigil is planned for Tuesday night at 6 p.m. at the Marion Hotel, where attendees will later make their way to the crash site to lay flowers.
