A motorcyclist has been airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital with serious head injuries after a collision with a truck Saturday afternoon.
The accident happened just before 4 p.m. on Dewdney Trunk Road, just west of Cottonwood Drive.
“Early investigation revealed that the motorcyclist may have been passing in the oncoming lane,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville with the Ridge Meadows RCMP traffic section, adding that it is still early in the investigation.
“At this point in time we feel speed is a contributing factor,” said Somerville.
Dewdney Trunk Road has been closed in both directions in between 234th St. and Cottonwood Drive while police investigate.
