There was another near-fatal motorcycle crash over the weekend. On Friday night, a motorcycle rider was critically injured in a crash in South Walkerville. The rider was still in hospital on Monday in intensive care.
Windsor police responded to the two-vehicle crash that happened at Kildare Road and Somme Avenue around 8:30 p.m. The motorcycle rider, a 27-year-old man, suffered life-threatening injuries after being thrown from the bike. The driver in the other vehicle did not suffer injuries.
The intersection had to be closed for several hours while collision reconstruction specialists studied the scene.
A resident of South Walkerville, Jim Trofin, was interviewed by the Windsor Star about the accident. He noted the crash site has been prone to accidents for years.
There have been discussions about making the intersection a four-way stop. Currently, Somme Avenue has stop signs and those on Kildare Road have the right of way. The speed limit in the area is 50 kilometers per hour. Trofin says the four roads approaching the intersection need speed bumps.
This crash is the latest fatal or near-fatal motorcycle crash in Windsor this year. A male motorcycle rider got killed in a head-on crash on Howard Avenue in September. There was another fatal collision on E.C. Row Expressway in August.
