A 19-year-old Maple Ridge man was injured when a barbecue fell out of a delivery truck Saturday afternoon.
At about 2 p.m. on May 26 both a flat-deck delivery truck and a motorcycle were exiting from Golden Ears Way onto Lougheed Highway heading west towards Pitt Meadows when a barbecue flew off the back of the truck. The motorcyclist tried to steer around the barbecue, but fell off his bike. He was taken to hospital, treated for injuries, and then released.
"The driver of the delivery truck was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act for driving with an insecure load," said Dunlop.
