Two 23-year-old men die in separate Surrey motorcycle crashes in three days

One man died Thursday night after his motorcycle crashed on Highway 10, and another man died following a Tuesday crash

Police say a man is dead after his motorcycle crashed on Highway 10 shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday night, in what is the second fatal motorcycle crash in the area in three days.

Both men who died were 23, according to police.

Surrey RCMP say they responded to reports that the man hit a centre median along the highway Thursday, in the 16000-block, in the eastbound lanes.

The man was treated by BC Ambulance and Surrey Fire at the scene.

He was taken to hospital, where he died.

Surrey Traffic Services, the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT), along with the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstructionist Services (ICARS) were on scene for several hours.

Police say the investigation is in the early stages, and CCIT will be continuing with the investigation into the cause of the incident.

Two days earlier, there was another serious motorcycle crash nearby.

A man was taken to hospital in serious condition after a collision between a pickup and a motorcycle at 64th Avenue and 168th Street on Aug. 14.

Surrey RCMP said Friday morning that he has died.

This year, there have been four Surrey collisions involving motorcycles where the motorcyclist has died, police say.
