Mission motorcyclist killed on Lougheed Highway

The 50-year-old rider was pronounced dead at the scene

A Mission motorcyclist was killed yesterday on Lougheed Highway.

The 50-year-old man was riding his Harley Davidson westbound east of the visitors’ booth just before 6 p.m. when it collided with the passenger side of a Dodge Durango.

An off-duty Mission firefighter and corrections officer attempted CPR on the motorcyclist, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The passenger in the Durango was transported by ambulance to Abbotsford Regional Hospital with leg injuries.

“As motorcycles become more and more popular on our roads it is imperative that drivers pay extra attention,” said Mission RCMP’s Sgt. Miriam Dickson. “With the climate in B.C., motorcyclists travel on our roads throughout the year so it is important to keep an eye out for them at all times.”

The exact cause of the collision is still under investigation and Mission RCMP are asking anyone with information to call 604-826-7161.
