A young boy and his father were injured Tuesday after being hit by a car while riding a motorcycle in Maple Ridge.

The six-year-old and his dad were heading to a karate class.

Witnesses said the motorcycle was driving east on Lorne Avenue and made a left hand turn from a stop sign onto to Maple Crescent when it was struck by a car, traveling west.

Tina Carr was on her way home when she saw the crash.

“It is a very dangerous intersection,” Carr said.

“It almost should have a crossing light. A lot of people run the cross walk and stuff.

I’ve never really witnessed it right in front of me, so close to home too.”

The boy and his father were taken to Royal Columbian Hospital. The extent of their injuries are unknown at the moment.
