South Surrey crash seriously injures motorcyclist

Police are looking for witnesses to an Oct. 15 serious-injury crash at 16 Avenue and King George Boulevard in South Surrey.

Surrey RCMP are appealing for witnesses following an intersection crash Thursday evening that sent a motorcyclist to hospital with serious leg injuries.

The collision took place at approximately 6:40 p.m. Oct. 15, at 16 Avenue and King George Boulevard, when a northbound Harley Davidson ridden by a 53-year-old South Surrey woman collided with a southbound Mazda driven by a 44-year-old Langley woman, according to police.

Investigation is ongoing, however, “the Mazda appears to have started a lefthand turn and the motorbike and the Mazda collided,” Cpl. Scotty Schumann said.

Transported with significant leg injuries, the motorcyclist is expected to be in hospital “for some time.”

“It was almost a head-on collision,” he said.

The Mazda driver – who was travelling with her daughter – remained at the scene and was later taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Schumann said police do not believe alcohol or speed were factors in the crash, however, it will be “months” before the investigation is complete.

In addition to witness accounts, investigators will be reviewing City of Surrey traffic-camera footage of the crash, evidence Schumann said will give police “a pretty good idea of what happened.”

The intersection remained closed to traffic until 2:30 a.m. Friday while police gathered evidence.

Anyone who saw the crash or has with information that could help investigators is asked to call the Surrey detachment at 604-599-0502. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca, quoting file number 2015-148895.
