According to the news, he fell into oncoming traffic and got run over.

It was pretty windy out there today. I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

Very tragic. I was coming back from the sea to sky hwy and was going to take the Lions Gate back to Vancouver. However, there was a delay at the Lions Gate bridge so i stayed on the hwy. I thought everyone was going into DT for diner, but i guessig this was the reason why.

what is sad about this is his father was riding in front. I cannot fathom the horror and the thought of having a son die in your arms. Condolences to the family, especially the father whom lost the mother of his now deceased child a couple years back. It is heartbreaking to know.
