A 29-year-old Lavington man died when lost control of a dirt bike and stuck his head, police say.

The unidentified man, who was not wearing a helmet, was found at 9 a.m. Saturday near the corner of Park Lane and Springfield Road in the North Okanagan community.

"From evidence at the scene, it appears the incident may have occurred the previous evening around 11 p.m.," Vernon RCMP Cpl. Tania Finn said in a release. "The man lived in the area, and the dirt bike did not have a headlight for night-time operation."

Police continue to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call Const. Sean Stevenson at 250-545-7171.
