The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a motorcyclist who died as the result of a motor vehicle incident in Penticton on May 11, 2013.
He was Clinton Bradley Albert Schoening, aged 34, a resident of West Kelowna.
Mr. Schoening was the operator of a motorcycle, which was proceeding northbound on Lakeside Road in Penticton, in the late evening hours of May 11. An RCMP officer proceeding in the opposite direction noticed the motorcycle, activated the cruiser's emergency equipment and turned around to follow it.
Some distance further down the road, the motorcycle left the road and hit a road sign. Mr. Schoening was deceased at the scene.
The BC Coroners Service and the Independent Investigations Office (IIO) continue to investigate the circumstances of this death.
The family of Mr. Schoening has been notified of his death. On behalf of family members, the BC Coroners Service asks that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time.
