Teen Killed In Motorcycle Crash

London police say speed was a factor in a motorcycle crash that killed a teenager.

Police and EMS crews were called out just after 1:30am to Ridout St. near Elmwood. Police say a motorcycle hit a pole. The 17-year-old driver was rushed to hospital, but later died from his injuries.

Police closed Ridout St. between Elmwood and Craig St. for several hours, but the road has since re-opened.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police at  (519) 661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
