Surrey RCMP are investigating a collision that left a cyclist seriously injured earlier this week.

In a release on Friday, police said that around 9:25 pm on February 18, officers responded to reports of an injured man in the 17900 block of Fraser Highway.

“He had been riding a bicycle that had been modified with a gas engine westbound on Fraser Highway and, at some point, appears to have collided with a metal pole,” police said.

The 29-year-old victim was taken to hospital, where police said he remains in “serious” condition.

At this point, police said the exact cause of the collision remains under investigation, and they believe there were witnesses who have not yet spoken to police.

“We are not only seeking to speak to people who saw the impact of the collision, but anyone who may have witnessed the circumstances prior to the collision,” said Surrey RCMP Const. Richard Wright. “We are also asking for any available dash-cam or cell phone videos relating to this incident.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Surrey RCMP by calling 604-599-0502.
