A crash involving a car and motorcycle in Abbotsford Sunday night has turned fatal, according to police.

The Abbotsford Police Department responded to the scene of the crash at Gladwin Road and Nanaimo Crescent shortly before 6:30 p.m., and says one of two people involved was rushed to hospital.

“The driver of the motorcycle, a 58-year-old man, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to hospital, but sadly succumbed to his injuries,” police said in a statement issued early Monday.
