A Surrey man is dead after striking a pole on his motorcycle.



A 42-year-old Surrey man is dead after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a pole in Delta this week.

At just after 6 a.m. Tuesday, a motorcyclist was heading southbound on Nordel Court from River Road when he turned at the intersection and lost control of his motorcycle.

The initial investigation indicates he turned on either an amber or red light, made a sudden maneuver and struck a pole.

He died at the scene.

The roads were still closed at noon Tuesday.
