Langley motorcyclist run over by tractor trailer unit

Police say Honda operator 'lucky to be alive' after Sunday collision near Bridal Falls

A 64-year-old Langley man is in critical but stable condition after crashing into and being run over by a tractor trailer unit near Bridal Falls.

“This motorcycle operator is extremely lucky to be alive,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen of the Lower Mainland District RCMP.

He urged motorcyclists to watch their speed and be aware of their surroundings at all

times.

Thiessen said that shortly after 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, (May 13), a black 1982 Honda motorcycle traveling west on Highway 1 took the Highway 9 off ramp near Bridal Falls.

“The motorcycle approached the stop sign at the intersection of the Highway 1 off ramp and Highway 9 and failed to stop, crashing into a northbound tractor trailer, hitting the passenger side fuel tank and then being run over by the tractor trailer,” Thiessen said.

The man, who has not been named, was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital.

The tractor trailer unit, a blue 2007 Western Star Conventional pulling a white 2010 Great Dane Reefer trailer, was driven by a 43-year-old Mission resident.

Fraser Valley Traffic Services are investigating.
