By Beacon Staff

The Montana Highway Patrol says a 53-year-old Canadian man was killed when his Harley Davidson motorcycle crashed head-on into a car on U.S. Highway 2 in northwestern Montana.

Trooper Roger Dundas says the motorcycle was traveling too fast going into a curve east of West Glacier on Tuesday afternoon, causing the bike to cross the center line into the path of an oncoming car.

The motorcyclist, who was from Regina, Saskatchewan, died on impact. The two residents of Cape Town, South Africa, who were in the rented car were not injured.

The man’s name has not been released.
