A Leamington woman is in serious condition following a serious motorcycle accident in Amherstburg on Friday night.

According to local police, the 27-year-old woman was a passenger on a motorcycle when it was forced from the road by an unidentified vehicle around 9:15 p.m. Both the woman and the driver of the motorcycle were thrown from the vehicle.

The woman suffered several injuries to her head and upper body, while the male driver suffered non-life threatening injuries, including broken bones and severe cuts. Both remain in the hospital.

The accident occurred on Howard Avenue between Alma Street and County Road 18. No description of the vehicle was available.

On Sunday evening, a multi-vehicle crash in Leamington seriously injured a 69-year-old man who had to be extricated from his vehicle.

According to police, the accident happened around 9:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Mersea Road 5 near County Road 31 when a pickup truck failed to stop at an intersection. Police stated that the truck ran through a stop sign and struck two other vehicles.

One of the vehicles was so badly damaged that the firefighters had to cut off the roof of the compact car to remove the victim who was trapped inside. The elderly man was transported to the hospital in serious condition.

The 17-year-old driver of the pickup truck has been charged with disobeying a stop sign and stopping in the wrong place. He and his passenger were not injured in the accident.
