Aldergrove man badly injured after slamming his motorcycle into SUV

Motorcyclist taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, while passengers in the other vehicle were unhurt in collision

A 38-year-old Aldergrove man is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after his motorcycle slammed into the back of a SUV on the freeway, near 200 Street on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Cpl. Ronda Rempel of the BC RCMP Traffic Services, around 4:30 p.m., the motorcyclist was driving eastbound on the freeway, just past 200 Street, when he rear-ended a vehicle and was ejected from his bike, leaving him with serious injuries.

“Contributing factors to the crash were speed and inattention on the part of the motorcyclist,” said Rempel. Witnesses told police, he was driving at a high rate of speed before the crash.

The Aldergrove man was taken by ambulance to a trauma hospital. The highway’s eastbound lanes were closed from 5:15 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The passengers in the SUV were taken to Langley Memorial Hospital as a precaution but all were released without injuries.

Because this crash happened in the middle of rush hour, there were plenty of witnesses who provided statements to the police, for which RCMP are appreciative.

The motorcyclist is expected to live but has very serious injuries, Rempel said.
