The collision happened shortly after 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Côte-Sainte-Catherine Road and Lemieux Street.

"According to initial reports, it appears that a car was making a U-turn on Côte-Sainte-Catherine Road from east to west at the time of the collision," said Montreal Police Service (SPVM) spokesperson, Const. Julien Lévesque.

The motorcyclist was travelling westbound on the same road as the car at the time of the collision. By mid-evening, the SPVM was waiting for an update on the health of the 54-year-old victim, who was transported to hospital.

As for the 41-year-old driver, she did not suffer any serious injuries, police say.
