Surrey bicyclist critically injured in crash involving bicycle and two motorcycles

SURREY — A man was taken to hospital in critical condition after a traffic crash involving two motorcycles and a bicycle early Sunday morning

It happened at 12:10 a.m., in the 18000-block of 88th Avenue.

Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann said the crash was “out of the ordinary.

The two motorcycles were travelling together, he said, when one of them hit the bicyclist at the edge of the road, then veered into the second motorcycle. “All three of them were down on the ground. The second motorcycle that was struck, the driver fled scene so his identity is unknown at this time.”

He took off running, leaving his motorcycle behind. The bicyclist landed in a ditch.

“The bicyclist received critical injuries and is still in hospital,” Schumann said. “The motorcyclist that struck the cyclist received less serious injuries but nonetheless did require hospitalization and it’s unknown what injuries if any the second motorcyclist that fled scene incurred.”

The RCMP searched for him with a helicopter, without success. Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
