UPDATE: Aldergrove man identified in Tuesday’s fatal crash

RCMP continue to investigate fatal collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle in Aldergrove

Police have confirmed it was a 32-year-old Aldergrove man who lost his life in the crash on 264 Street Tuesday morning.

Langley RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the accident that saw the Aldergrove man’s motorcycle collide with the passenger side of a car turning left into a business.

Speed is believed to have been a contributing factor in a crash that killed the motorcyclist.

Around 7:30 a.m., a 26-year-old Langley man driving a red Toyota Corolla northbound was making a left turn into a business at 72 Avenue and 264 Street.

At the same time, the motorcycle was travelling south at a high rate of speed when it collided with the passenger side of the turning Toyota.

The motorcyclist died at the scene.

Emergency responders were joined on scene by victim services volunteers, who were called out to support people who witnessed the crash, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.

The driver of the Corolla wasn’t injured but was distraught and met with RCMP Victim Services.

A stretch of 264 Street was closed between 72 and 84 Avenues for all of Tuesday morning. RCMP’s integrated collision analysts were also on scene assisting Langley police with the investigation.

Police said they heard a school bus may have been in the area just before the crash but haven’t confirmed that information.

“Police do believe speed to be a factor on the part of the motorcycle and would encourage anyone with information on his driving pattern leading up to the 7:30 a.m. crash to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

“Witnesses to the collision itself who have not yet spoken to police are also asked to call and provide their information,” said Largy.
