Heard the sirens last night and the call come over a friend's firehall pager that a single rider went down last night (Friday August 24) at about 8:00. Apparently the bike caught fire as it slid into a ditch and a water truck put it out before the ERT arrived. I wandered up to take a look as it's just around the corner from where I live, saw the rider flat on his back with ERT attending. A fireman had to ride in the ambulance to Royal Columbian -- this is not a good sign.
From what I could tell, the rider missed the corner and hit a centre median at the intersection pretty hard, which launched the bike and himself down the street. The bike was a red CBR600RR -- wondering if anyone has an update on the rider?
