Fleeing Motorcyclist Only Injures Himself- Thanks Goodness!!
At approximately 09:40 am on March 6, 2007, Burnaby RCMP were notified that a motorcyclist had fallen off his 2005 black motorbike and crashed on to the roadway at Edmonds Street at Canada Way. The 22 year old male from Surrey who witnessed this crash and had called authorities,then approached the male who had fallen to offer him his assistance.
Instead of accepting this kind man’s help, the motorcyclist jumped back on his motorcycle and fled from the scene. He was located awhile later in the 7900 block of 18th Ave.. This male who has now been identified as a 23 year old male from Burnaby was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital for treatment for his injuries. It was discovered that this male had a number of outstanding warrants from Burnaby and Vancouver and that the motorcycle he had been riding was in fact stolen from another location in Burnaby. This male was taken into custody, and once he had been treated for his injuries, was brought back to the Burnaby Detachment so that he could attend Vancouver Provincial court this morning.
Luckily noone else was hurt in this crash or in the subsequent fleeing of this individual! He wasn't wearing a helmet and is very fortunate that his injuries are not worse.
