Three to five vehicles, including a motorcycle, were involved in a collision that clogged the Haney Bypass late Tuesday, according to reports.

Ridge Meadows RCMP confirmed that a motorcycle collided with a vehicle at Lougheed Highway and Kanaka Way.

According to other reports, RCMP attempted to pull over a motorcycle for running  a red light around 225th Street and Lougheed.

The motorcycle was said to flee from police after emergency lights were activated.

The motorcycle then collided with a car and ejected the rider some 150 feet over several cars, landing on the road.

Fire rescue and paramedics attended to the male rider and he was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital with serious injuries, reports said.

As well, three to four cars sustained damage in the high-speed collision, but no one else was injured. One witness estimated the speed of the motorcycle in excess of 150 kilometres per hour.

“The IIOBC has been notified to determine if there is a connection between the injuries of the motorcycle rider and the actions or inactions of police,” according to Ridge RCMP.
