A 31-year-old man has died in hospital following a road collision in Montreal’s Pointe-aux-Trembles borough.

The accident occurred at around 3:25 p.m. at the intersection of Notre-Dame St. East and Georges-V Ave.

Witnesses told police the man was driving a motorcycle east on Notre-Dame.

A vehicle travelling west made a left turn on to Georges-V, resulting in a collision with the motorbike, according to Montreal police (SPVM).

The motorcyclist was taken to hospital in critical condition, where he died hours later. 

The driver of the vehicle, a woman in her 30s, was not injured.

Officers closed Notre-Dame St. in both directions from Georges-V to Hector St following the accident, but the street has since reopened.
