On Saturday at approximately 9 p.m., the Surrey was called to a collision which occurred on 8th Avenue, and the intersection of 172nd Street involving a motorcycle and a car, reported S/Sgt. M.A. Hedderson of the Surrey detachment.

Surrey Traffic Services and Surrey Detachment General duty members attended to the scene.

A 2003 Saturn, being driven by a resident of North Vancouver, was west bound on 8th Avenue, and was turning left onto 172nd Strett when it was in collision with a motorcycle, travelling east bound on 8th Avenue.

“The two persons on the motorcycle were ejected,” Hedderson explained. “The male driver of the motorcycle, a 32-year-old resident of Langley- was deceased at the scene. The female passenger, a 22 year old resident of Surrey was transported to hospital by Air Ambulance in serious condition.”
