Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the death of a Moose Jaw man at approximately 5:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
According to a press release from the RCMP, Colin Shepherd, 55, was traveling on his motorcycle with a group of riders on Highway 2 south - about 2 km north of Buffalo Pound Provincial Park - when it left the highway and rolled into the ditch on the other side of the meridian.
Shepherd was pronounced dead at the scene.
An RCMP forensic collision reconstructionist attended to the scene of the accident to assist with the investigation; however, the accident is still under investigation.
Highway 2 north of Buffalo Pound was re-opened by RCMP at about 12:20 a.m. Sunday.
