A motorcyclist was sent to hospital with serious life-threatening injuries after colliding with a car in Pitt Meadows Wednesday night.

Ridge Meadows RCMP said they received a report of a crash on Old Dewdney Trunk Road between Harris and Hale Roads around 8:30 p.m.

“The motorcyclist collided with a car as it made a left hand turn,” Const. Julie Klaussner with the Ridge Meadows RCMP explained.

“The motorcyclist was transported to hospital with a very serious life threatening injury but, thankfully, doctors advised he would survive.”

Police say this is the third motorcycle collision in recent days.

Over the weekend officers responded to two incidents involving motorcycles, in one case two people were taken to hospital.

“We again want to remind drivers to be extra aware of all road users during this summer as roads are busier,” Klaussner said.

The area was closed to traffic as emergency responders attended the scene.
