RCMP are investigating an accident between a motorcycle and a van on Hurd Street.

A collision between a motorcycle and a van has sent two people to hospital with injuries.

According to a Mission RCMP spokesperson, the accident took place late Sunday, March 24, afternoon on Hurd Street near Holiday Avenue.

A man in his mid 30s was driving a motorcycle with his female passenger, also in her mid 30s, when they collided with a minivan.

The female passenger on the motorcycle sustained serious injuries to her upper body and head. She was transported to Royal Columbian Hospital by BC Ambulance Service where she remains in critical condition.

The male driver of the motorcycle was also sent to hospital.

The driver of the Dodge mini van remained on scene.

The investigation is continuing.

The Mission RCMP want to remind all motorists that it is motorcycle season and to be diligent and attentive when driving.
