Lakeshore man and woman suffer life-threatening injuries in motorcycle crash

A man and woman from Lakeshore were sent to hospital with life-threatening injuries after the motorcycle they were riding was struck Sunday evening.

The 57-year-old man and 54-year-old woman were riding near the intersection of Essex Country Road 27 and North Talbot Road around 6 p.m. when their Harley Davidson was hit by a brown Ford, according to provincial police.

The 22-year-old male driver of the Ford was from Romney, Ontario. He suffered minor injuries in the crash.

The collision marks the third serious or fatal incident involving motorcyclists in the past two months.

17-year-old Garrett Fabel, described as funny and sweet by friends, died after being stuck by a minivan on March 9. A 46-year-old man who was driving the van has been charged with failing to reasonably avoid a collision in a left turn.

A 26-year-old motorcyclist was sent to hospital on March 22 after crashing into a parked vehicle.

At the time, Windsor police warned drivers and motorcyclists to brush up on safe driving practices.
