On June 9th at approximately 8:15pm, Surrey RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle on the South Fraser Perimeter Road west of the Port Mann Bridge overpass.
Upon attendance, officers learned that a male motorcyclist was travelling eastbound in the curb lane of South Fraser Perimeter Road, east of 136th Street, when he was struck from behind by a grey Ford pickup truck. The victim was taken to local hospital by emergency health services with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

“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.”
