A motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Delta near the Massey Tunnel on Wednesday morning (June 12, 2024).

A motorcyclist is dead following an early morning crash near the Massey Tunnel on Wednesday (June 12).

BC Highway Patrol say the rider was driving northbound along Highway 99 when, shortly before 6:15 a.m., they crashed into a car and fell onto the roadway. While lying there, the motorcyclist was struck once again when a semi-truck hit them with its rear wheels. 

They were critically injured and died.

BC Highway Patrol say the driver of the semi-truck did not stay at the scene and that it is possible they didn't know they had struck someone. The policing unit is hoping to speak with the driver as well as any other witnesses to the fatal crash.
