Three people were taken to the hospital following an accident involving two motorcycles around 4:20 a.m. on University Avenue W. Updated reports have revealed that a 26-year-old man was killed in the crash while the other two victims, a 28-year-old man and 28-year-old woman, suffered serious injuries.
A red and white motorcycle was photographed at the scene resting against the rear end of a vehicle near Nicks Auto Clinic.
Debris from the crash was scattered throughout the area. University Avenue W. between Huron Church Road and Detroit Street were closed for more than four hours. The sidewalks were open while police investigated the scene.
There were no witnesses, but police are asking anyone who may be able to provide further information to come forward.
This is the second motorcycle accident in the area in less than a month. On September 23, a group of motorcycles were involved in a collision on Riverside Drive and Campbell Avenue. One of the motorcyclists suffered from a bone fracture while others suffered minor injuries.
The incidents are one of many motorcycle accident injuries and deaths reported in Ontario this year.
The Ontario Provincial Police have warned that motorcycle crashes are increasing and riders and motorists must drive defensively to prevent these types of collisions.
