Earlier this month in Windsor, two motorcyclists collided on Sandwich Street, resulting in the death of one rider and the hospitalisation of the other motorcyclist and his 28-year-old passenger.

The early morning accident occurred at approximately 4:20 a.m. as the two bikes were headed east. Probably due to the time of the crash, no witnesses have been identified, according to police. They were alerted to the accident by an individual who came upon the wreckage.

The 26-year-old driver of the black Harley Davidson was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The 28-year-old driver on the white Honda CBR who had a 28-year-old woman riding behind him survived the initial collision, although his and his passenger’s conditions remain unknown at this time.

The Honda stopped against a car in Nick’s Auto Clinic lot, located on University Ave. W., near the split of Sandwich Street into Riverside Drive and University Avenue. The Harley Davidson was found nearby. The debris field from the crash was scattered over the street and parking lot. Both areas were mapped with yellow evidence markers. The fatal collision caused street closures for much of the morning.

Not even a month earlier on Sept. 23, another motorcycle crash occurred near the same area. In that accident, police observed a pack of bikes downtown and followed them west on Riverside Drive. The collision happened in that area, and the province’s Special Investigations Unit responded.

The survivors of those who suffer fatal injuries in motorcycle and bicycle collisions have the right to seek compensation from at-fault drivers for the loss of their loved ones.
