A man and a woman have been transported to hospital with critical injuries after a motorcycle collided with a car and struck a pedestrian Sunday evening.
The crash happened around 5:30 p.m. near Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue East.
Witnesses told CP24 that three motorcycles were travelling northbound on Yonge Street prior to the crash.
Police said as the motorcycles approached Pleasant Boulevard, a southbound vehicle was attempting to make a left-hand turn.
“He may or may not have been able to see the motorcyclists coming,” Sgt. Paul Strangeways told CP24 at the scene. “As he made his turn, he clipped one of the motorcyclists who subsequently lost control, clipped the curb and struck a pedestrian.”
Police said the impact of the crash threw the rider off his motorcycle.
A man in his late 40s and a woman in her late 50s were transported to a trauma centre.
A collision reconstruction team is investigating the crash.
