A 38-year-old motorcyclist has died after being hit by a pickup truck in Milton, Ont.

Halton regional police say it happened Saturday afternoon near the corner of Appleby Line and Limestone Road.

The victim from Milton was riding a 2007 Ducati motorcycle when he failed to navigate a turn and crossed the centreline.

The man then slid along the road and was struck by a pickup truck driven by a 38-year-old woman from nearby Erin.

Police say the man was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead, while the woman was not hurt in the crash.

A collision reconstruction unit was called in to investigate.
