UPDATE: One person dies after motorcycle and car collide in west end
A collision between a motorcycle and a BMW vehicle in the city's west end overnight has claimed the life of a 45 year old man.
The accident occurred in the the area of Indian Valley Crescent and Parkside Drive near High Park just after 2:30 Saturday morning.
The BMW was travelling southbound on Parkside Drive, while the man and his 27-year-old female passenger were heading northbound on a Harley Davidson when they collided.
The impact of the collision knocked the rider and the passenger off the motorcycle.
Toronto police spokesperson Katrina Arrogante confirmed to NEWSTALK 1010 Saturday morning that the male rider was pronounced dead in hospital.
"Police arrived on scene together with EMS and found that the male motorcyclist was found without any vital signs, but has been pronounced deceased at the hospital since."
The female passenger was also transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
"Initially we got the call that one vehicle was driving in the area and had crossed over into a lane and collided with the motorcyclist," she said. "Traffic Services are still investigating the location to try and piece together exactly how the collision had occurred."
Arrogante also asks that anyone with any information or dash cam video of the scene around the time of the accident is asked to contact police.
Investigators are specifically looking for the driver and the passengers of a car that was seen heading northbound on Parkside Drive ahead of the motorcycle.
