Witnesses sought in Surrey motorcycle crash

Quick acting police officers tend to severely injured leg, possibly saving the biker.

Two vehicles headed southbound on King George Boulevard  this month resulted in serious injuries to a motorcyclist.

And now police are asking for public assistance to figure our exactly what happened.

On July 14 at about 7 a.m., a grey 2009 Toyota Matrix collided with a Harley Davidson while heading southbound on King George Boulevard at about 106 Avenue.

The driver of the Matrix was unharmed, but the motorcyclist didn’t fare so well.

The biker was bleeding profusely from a badly injured leg and his vehicle was in flames.

Two officers that arrived on scene used a belt as a tourniquet to stem the bleeding.

“If it were not for the quick thinking actions of these first officers on scene, the injuries to this motorcyclist may have been much more serious and a potentially dangerous situation may not have been averted,” says Surrey RCMP Corporal Bert Paquet. “The initial prognosis was that the male may lose his leg, however, after undergoing successful surgery it appears that this will not be the case.”

Anyone with more information about this incident who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) at 604-599-0502.
