A motorcyclist was taken to hospital Wednesday night (July 28) but is expected to fully recover after a hit-and-run collision in Port Coquitlam.
Now, Coquitlam RCMP are looking to identify the van involved in the serious incident and are appealing to the public for help.

It's described as:
- Dark coloured
