A 73-year-old Chilliwack motorcyclist was killed when he went over an embankment on Anarchist Mountain east of Osoyoos Wednesday night.

Osoyoos RCMP, with assistance from Oliver RCMP and Anarchist Mountain Fire Department, responded to the accident at 1:09 a.m. Thursday, said a statement issued by Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen Regional RCMP Detachment.

Police said the man was travelling east on Highway 3 when he failed to negotiate a sharp curve and went over an embankment about six kilometres east of Osoyoos.

The man was found deceased by his family, who were looking for him after he left their vacation accommodation for a ride earlier in the evening and failed to return.

The BC Coroners Service is now investigating.
