Motorcyclist dies in Mt. Woodside collision

A Langley man died of his injuries following a collision on Mt. Woodside near Agassiz on Labour Day.

RCMP said the man was driving a motorcycle west on the Lougheed Hwy. The motorcyclist, age 27, failed to negotiate one of the turns on the hill and entered the eastbound lane where he collided with an oncoming car.

The driver of the car, a Chilliwack man, was uninjured in the crash. However, the driver of a second motorcycle was injured in the multiple vehicle collision. He had non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Chilliwack General Hospital for treatment.

The accident happened just after 4 p.m. on the holiday Monday. The highway remained closed in both directions for several hours, and Fraser Valley Traffic Services is investigating the collision. They are also requested assistance from the RCMP's Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstructionist Services (ICARS) and the BC Coroners Service.

No name will be released of the man who died, at the request of his family.
