Motorcyclist killed in Glen Valley crash

An Abbotsford man was killed and his son injured in a crash.

A motorcyclist was killed and his 10-year-old son injured in a crash in Glen Valley in northeast Langley Wednesday.

On Aug. 12, a 41-year-old man from Abbotsford was riding east on 88th Avenue when he struck a truck that was pulling out of a driveway in the 26700 block.

The truck, driven by a Pitt Meadows man, was attempting to head westbound on 88th, said Sgt. Alexandra Mulvihill.

The motorcycle hit the rear of the turning truck. The rider was declared dead at the scene, said Mulvihill. His son was taken to hospital and is currently in stable condition and expected to live.

Langley RCMP Traffic Services are still investigating the incident, and believe a combination of speed and driver judgement may have been factors.

Alcohol does not seem to have been involved, and officers are also looking at sightlines for both drivers around a small bridge at the location of the crash.

Mulvihill reminded drivers that more motorcycles are on the road this time of the year, and other drivers should be alert for their presence.
