A motorcyclist is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after being struck from behind by an SUV at Ogden Point this morning.
Victoria police and a B.C. Ambulance crew quickly attended to a 55-year-old Central Saanich motorcycle rider, who was hit in the cruise ship terminal parking lot.
“It looks by preliminary investigation and witness reports that the motorcycle was rear-ended by a fast traveling SUV,” VicPD spokesperson Cst. Mike Russell said.
The VicPD crash team has cordoned off the area and will spend the next several hours analyzing and reconstructing the scene. Investigators are looking into whether speed or impairment are factors in the collision.
The driver of the vehicle was also taken to hospital, with non-life threatening injuries.
