Motorcyclist seriously injured in Sunday crash

Police are looking for witnesses to a Sunday night accident that left a male motorcyclist with serious head injuries.

Around 6:45 p.m., Richmond Mounties were called to a crash scene on No. 2 Road and Colville, between Francis and Blundell.

According to investigators, the motorcycle was seen heading south on No. 2 Road when the driver lost control of the vehicle, Richmond RCMP Sgt. Cam Kowalski said.

The rider, in his 20s, was taken to Vancouver General Hospital with a serious head injury that required surgery. Nobody else was injured.

Investigators believe that speed was likely a factor.

Kowalski said investigators would like to speak to the driver of a white SUV that may have been making a turn at the time of the crash.

Kowalski said the surgery for the motorcycle rider went well, but he remains in serious condition.

Police have already interviewed a couple of witnesses, but would like to speak to anyone that saw what happened.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Richmond RCMP’s traffic services section at 604-278-1212.
