Air ambulance dispatched following incident at 148 Street and 30 Avenue Monday

Two people were taken to hospital – including one by air ambulance, with life-threatening injuries – following a crash Monday morning in South Surrey involving a motorcycle.

According to one person who was at the scene, two people in their 50s were injured at approximately 9 a.m., when their motorcycle rear-ended a stopped vehicle that was behind a truck waiting to make a left turn at the intersection of 148 Street and 30 Avenue.

In a news release issued just after 12:30 p.m., police said it’s believed both vehicles were in the northbound lane of 148 Street when the crash occurred.

The man was airlifted in critical condition, and the woman was transported by ground ambulance with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the driver of the car was uninjured.

Investigation – by Surrey’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team and the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstructionist Service – is ongoing.

Police closed 148 Street in both directions, between 28 and 30 avenues, for several hours to investigate. The road has since been reopened to traffic.
