A motorcycle operator suffered severe injuries when his machine was in collision with a semi-trailer truck unit in a large industrial section in northwest Langley.
Langley RCMP spokesman Cpl. Holly Marks said that it appears the collision occurred as the truck, traveling west on 92 Avenue, was making a left turn on to 196A Street, into the path of the eastbound motorcycle.
The collision occurred at 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday. Because of the severity of his injuries the motorcycle operator was airlifted to hospital where he is in critical condition.
Marks said that ICARS, the Integrated Collision and Reconstruction Analysis Service, was at the scene helping police with the investigation. Police closed 92 Avenue between 194 and 200 Streets and do not expect the area to be re-opened for several hours.
