At approximately 6:22 p.m. on June 12th, a 30 year old male was operating his motorcycle eastbound on Wyecroft Road near the GO Train station in the Town of Oakville. At that time a male in his 50's was driving a sedan in the opposite direction, and made a left turn in front of the motorcycle. The two vehicles collided, resulting in both the motorcycle and rider ending up over 40 metres away from the location of the impact.
Halton Regional Police officers responded to the scene, and the motorcycle rider was transported to the Hamilton General hospital, where he was diagnosed with non life altering injuries, specifically a fractured leg and minor lacerations.
The Collision Reconstruction Unit assisted with the investigation at the scene, and the driver of the sedan was ultimately charged with the Highway Traffic Act offence of "Driver Turn Not In Safety", and is scheduled to appear in Provincial Offences court in relation to the charge.
The Halton Regional Police Service would like to thank the members of the public and media for their cooperation and patience while this investigation took place. All road closures and lane restrictions that had been imposed during the investigation have now been reopened.
