A 45-year-old Listowel man has died from injuries stemming from a motorcycle accident on County Road. 90 this week.
Barrie police say the man “died late Thursday” from injuries sustained in the crash.
Authorities responded to the accident at the County Road intersection just after 9 a.m. Tuesday. 90 and Townline Road/County Road 27.
Police told CTV News on Tuesday that the motorcyclist lost control and got off the bike while traveling west on County Road. 90.
“It appears that the operator of the pickup truck was stopping for a red light at the intersection and at that point, the motorcycle – for unknown reasons – lost control and the driver was ejected and drove some distance off the road. He attacked the vehicle,” said Peter Lyons, corporate communications coordinator with Barry Police.
Leon said that the road was wet because of the rain that morning.
The motorcyclist was initially taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries before being transferred to a Toronto-area trauma center.
