One of the world’s best skateboarders
appears to have died after a motorcycle collision near Nelson, B.C.
Josh Evin was driving the motorcycle
that crashed at about 2 a.m. Sunday while approaching the Blewett
Evin and a male passenger were thrown
into a canal at the bridge, but the passenger climbed out and was
recuperating in a hospital on Monday. Evin has not been seen and
Nelson police say it doesn’t look good for him.
Police sent a dive team into the canal,
but have not found a body.
Evin was riding a 750 cc Honda, which
hit a parking abutment at the 90-degree turn onto the bridge. Speeds
on the Blewett Road in that area can get high.
The motorcycle went off the road, and
the two men were ejected.
Evin is among the 10 top-ranked
skateboarders in the world.
