Surrey RCMP is requesting additional witnesses to an incident that occurred last month that left a female cyclist with significant head injuries.
On June 12th, 2016 at 2:45pm, Surrey RCMP was advised of a female cyclist who was found injured on the roadway in the 14700 block of Winter Crescent. Upon police attendance, officers located an unresponsive 61 year old female being treated by paramedics. The female was transported by air ambulance to local area hospital with significant head injuries. Officers spoke to multiple persons at the scene and collected physical evidence but have been unable to determine what transpired. Police are looking for witnesses or video surveillance that would help determine if the female fell off her bike of her own accord or she was knocked off.
The victim is still recovering from her head injuries which are considered life-altering, says Surrey RCMP Sergeant Alanna Dunlop.
As a result, police and family are appealing to anyone who may have additional information or observed the cyclist before she was injured to determine the exact circumstances behind this incident.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
