The B.C. Coroners Service has identified the man killed in a Whistler logging truck turnover on Friday as a West Vancouver resident.
Hugh Craig Roberts, 65, was riding his motorcycle on Highway 99 near the Whistler Village when an oncoming logging truck lost control on a bend in the road and overturned. The truck's load of logs spilled onto the roadway and struck Roberts.
He was taken to hospital in Whistler but died of his injuries.
Whistler RCMP and the B.C. Coroners Service continue to investigate his death.
The accident has renewed calls for increasing logging truck safety standards.
Roberts' memorial service is scheduled for Friday at West Vancouver Baptist Church.
