Brian Hall, age 59, has been identified as the Rossland resident killed following an off-road motorcycling accident on July 2.

The BC Coroners Service confirmed his identity this week and continue, with the RCMP, to investigate his death.

Last week, Trail and Greater District RCMP and BC Coroner Services attended the scene of the fatal motorcycle collision after receiving a report of an apparent accidental death of a dirt bike rider.

The deceased failed to show up at a friend’s house after a day of dirt biking alone on July 2.

The two friends commenced a search on July 3 and located Hall that morning in a heavily treed area several kilometres from Casino, south of Trail.

Scene examination revealed that Hall had lost control of his bike and collided with a tree sustaining an instantly fatal injury as a result.
