Crash under investigation by Langley RCMP

A motorcycle crash in rural Langley left a woman in hospital with head injuries, RCMP say.

At about 6:45 p.m. on Aug. 10, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle crashed near 61st Avenue and 243rd Street, said Cpl. Patrick Davies of the Langley RCMP.

The man at the control of the motorcyle crashed and both passengers skidded on the road. The bike wound up in a nearby ditch.

The man suffered only minor injuries, such as road rash, said Davies.

Despite wearing a helmet, the woman suffered a head injury and was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital. She remained there three days later in stable condition, said Davies.

The crash was not linked to alcohol, said Davies.

“However, we believe that speed was a factor,” he said.

The Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) has taken measurements and is studying the cause of the crash, said Davies.

Police have also spoken to one witness, but are hoping there are other people who may have seen the crash, or seen the moments leading up to it.

Anyone with information, who has not already spoken to police, can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
