Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) say two motorcyclists were seriously injured in separate crashes on the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) Monday afternoon.
In a social media post, Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said in both instances the riders were sent to hospital.
The first instance happened early afternoon in Burlington, Ont., on the QEW ramp to Centennial Parkway.
“A single motorcycle rider lost control and ended up with serious injuries,” Schmidt said.
Later around 3 p.m. police responded to a motorcycle collision on the eastbound QEW approaching Winston Churchill Boulevard in Oakville.
“Again, a single motorcycle rider reported by witnesses traveling erratically or aggressively prior to the collision,” said Schmidt.
