A stolen motorcycle burst into flames when it T-boned a Honda Civic on Thursday evening in Willoughby.

A female driver was making a left turn from a church parking lot in the 20300 block of 82 Avenue when the motorcycle, which police say was speeding, came over the hill and drove right into the driver’s side of her car.

The motorcyclist was thrown from the bike and his helmet came off before he hit the ground, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

The driver of the blue Honda had the good sense to climb out the passenger door as her car caught fire. The aftermath shows that even her headrest was on fire..

Both drivers were taken to hospital. The bike rider’s leg is severely injured and he also has head injuries, said Marks. The female driver didn’t suffer any serious injuries.

The bike was stolen out of White Rock, Marks said.

Police will be pursuing charges of stolen property.
