UPDATE: The Abbotsford Police Department reported on Tuesday, May 12 that the driver of the white pickup truck has been located and that witnesses have provided dashcam footage to investigators. The motorcyclist remains in hospital with life-threatening injuries.


The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is reaching out to the public to find witnesses of a collision between a motorcyclist and sedan-type vehicle, which sent the biker to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Officers of APD’s general investigations unit continue to seek the cause of the accident, which occurred Thursday, May 7 just before 2 p.m. at the Fraser Highway and Mt. Lehman Road intersection. Several roads were closed afterwards while an investigation took place.

“Police are appealing to the public to come forward if they witnessed the incident or were in the area of Mt. Lehman and Fraser Highway between 1:35 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. and have dashcam footage that may assist in the investigation,” says an APD news release.

A driver of a white pickup is of particular interest to police, who they say likely witnessed the incident. The truck had signage on the driver’s door and was travelling north on Mt. Lehman Road before turning west onto Fraser Highway towards Langley.

While the motorcyclist was transported to hospital by BC Ambulance Services, the sedan’s driver remained on scene and was not injured.
