A motorcyclist has been charged after a collision along the Haney Bypass on Tuesday.

The rider was charged with disobeying a traffic control device after colliding with a Mercedes traveling south along the bypass at Callaghan Avenue.

The Mercedes then struck another car.

The motorcycle rider was taken to hospital with head injuries, but is expected to survive.

The accident happened at the same intersection where two fatalities have taken place since May 10.

Katelynn Kirkland, a 15-year-old passenger, died after two vehicles collided there on Mother’s Day.

Jay Easton, a 45-year-old Surrey firefighter, died June 2 after his motorcycle was involved in a crash on the Haney Bypass on May 20.

Jeff Struchtrup, the father of 15-year-old Kirkland, and his sister, Nicole Grant, have started the petition for Katie’s Corner on change.org, to be directed to the city, asking to make intersection safer. The petition has garnered 818 signatures, so far.
