VANCOUVER – Mounties say a 56-year-old motorcyclist from Burnaby was seriously injured in a hit-and-run in Surrey on Monday evening.
At about 8:15 p.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a collision between a pick-up truck and a motorcycle on the South Fraser Perimeter Road, west of the Port Mann Bridge overpass.
Officers learned that the motorcyclist was travelling eastbound in the curb lane of the South Fraser Perimeter Road, east of 136 Street, when he was hit from behind by a grey Ford pick-up truck.
The victim was taken to local hospital by emergency health services with serious but non-life threatening injuries. Police say the male driver of the pick-up truck stopped his vehicle and initially got out of his truck, however, he fled the scene before police arrived.
“We would like to remind the driver involved in this incident that it is never too late to contact our investigators right away and turn himself in,” says Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “It is always better to approach the police than have the police approach you.”
Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
