Surrey RCMP asks for witnesses to crash in Newton

65-year-old motorcyclist remains in hospital from Nov. 18 collision

Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s help in finding witnesses to a crash in Newton on Nov. 18.

Police are looking for anyone who witnessed to the collision in the 6900-block of King George Boulevard around 5 p.m. on Nov. 18, according to a news release on Friday (Dec. 21).

RCMP said early indications are that “a red Sukuzi motorcycle was travelling southbound on King George Boulevard when a grey Lexus SUV turned out of a parking lot in front of the motorcycle.”

“The motorcyclist applied his brakes which caused the motorcycle to lose balance, slide and collide into the SUV,” the release reads.

The 65-year-old motorcyclist, said police, was taken to hospital with “serious injuries,” and he remains in hospital.

The 28-year-old driver of the SUV “did not sustain any injuries,” and she remained on scene and “co-operated with police,” according to the release.

Surrey RCMP said the Criminal Collision Investigation Team is in charge of the investigation.

Investigators are asking anyone who was a witness to this incident who has not yet spoken with police, or anyone who may have dash cam, or any other video which could assist in this investigation to please contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If they wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or solvecrime.ca.
