This time of year there are many people in southern Ontario enjoying their motorcycles. Few summer activities are more enjoyable than taking to the road by motorcycle - meeting up with fellow riders, or taking a scenic ride. For many motorcyclists, riding is a hobby, a source or recreation, and passion. Unfortunately, for some riders this season will result in tragic injury, or even death. Many motorcycle accidents in Toronto and throughout Ontario are the result of other drivers simply not paying attention.
Despite efforts to remind drivers to be on the lookout for motorcycles, there are countless accidents where cars and trucks simply fail to see a motorcycle. These motorcycle accidents often involve cars and trucks turning across the path of an approaching motorcycle, or making lane changes and striking the motorcycle. When a motorcycle crashes into a car or is knocked down, the outcome will often be serious injury, and sometimes even fatal. Many accidents could be avoided by simply being patient and courteous while driving. Take your time and look before turning, as there may be a motorcycle nearby.
Most recently in Toronto, two people were seriously injured when the motorcycle they were riding collided with a vehicle that made a left turn across the motorcycle's path. According to reports, one of the occupants had life-threatening injuries and the other had serious injuries, after a collision between a motorcycle and car at Lakeshore Avenue and Carlaw in Toronto. This Toronto motorcycle accident occurred on June 16, 2017.
