For the second time in as many days, a crash involving a motorcyclist closed a section of the Trans Canada Highway through southern British Columbia.

The latest crash happened early Thursday just east of Salmon Arm when a motorcycle collided with a pickup truck.

RCMP Corporal Mike Halskov says the motorcyclist was airlifted to hospital in serious condition, while the driver of the pickup is unhurt.

A motorcyclist died Wednesday on Highway 1, about 29 kilometres west of Revelstoke after colliding with a transport truck.

That stretch of the Trans Canada was closed for several hours Wednesday and Highway 1 east of Salmon Arm was also closed for a time Thursday.

The cause of both crashes remains under investigation.
