A collision between an automobile and a motorcycle claimed the life of a 22-year-old man this weekend in Oakville.

At around 1 a.m. on Saturday (Oct. 22), the Oakville man was driving his motorcycle northbound on Trafalgar Rd. when he collided with a southbound vehicle, driven by a 29-year-old female, attempting to turn left on Iroquois Shore Rd.

Despite lifesaving efforts, the driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the automobile received minor injuries.

The collision closed the intersection for approximately three-and-a-half hours while Halton Regional Police investigated the crash.
