A motorcycle rider crashed directly in front of an RCMP officer trying to pull him over for speeding on the weekend in Langley's Glen Valley.
On Oct. 13, the officer had pulled over a speeder in the 25900 block of 88th Avenue, east of Fort Langley, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The officer heard the roar of motorcycle engines coming from the west, and used
his handheld laser unit to clock them at more than 130 km/h in a 60 km/h zone, said Marks.
The officer waved the three bikers to the side of the road, and two of them came to a stop without any problem.
The third rider, less experienced than his friends, went into a skid of more than 50 metres long before letting go of his motorcycle, said Marks.
The rider suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene by BC Ambulance paramedics. He did not have to be taken to the hospital.
The riders, aged 22, 23, and 24, and all Abbotsford residents, had their bikes taken away. The three Harley Davidsons were impounded for seven days at the expense of the owners, and all three men have been given $368 violation tickets.
