A 21-year-old Pickering man is expected to survive after being rushed to hospital May 16 following a collision between a Honda CR-V and the motorcycle he was driving in Markham.

Police were called to the scene of the crash at Bur Oak Avenue and Markham Road at 2:39 p.m. and reported the man sustained life-threatening injuries. His condition has since improved.

The driver of the Honda, a 50-year-old Markham woman, is charged with careless driving.

If OP submitted video, I wonder if the outcome would be different?

Because it's very old. Like, very, very old. I guess the timestamp isn't good.

Edit: Umm, well even if the timestamp was wrong, I guess perhaps it just looks very similar to another very old takedown video, but it's not the same? I might have called "repost" too fast on that one!
I can't find it either, it was a long time ago.

The worst thing about riding is stupid left hand turners. I love how the stunned woman just non-chalantly gets out of her Cervex and stands by the lamp pole after she likely killed someone.

... and the first dude goes and checks the CRV first? WTF... at least the other woman seemed to care.

biker should have been in almost center line (guard line or whatever they call it) as to prevent the driver not being able to see. I agree though, he should have been a bit more cautious. Be seen, make eye contact and always have an out.

Likely no, any witness would have said it's green for the biker.

The guy is only 21 and it was a sports bike. My guess is he was passing from the right (and maybe pulling a wheelie while at it). So neither the CRV nor the biker saw the other. Otherwise the impact speed couldn't gotten so high.

Incident was tragic but the guy should learn that testosterone can be one dangerous naturally occurring substance.

Don't get me wrong, the CRV was in the wrong, but that biker looked like he was going above the speed limit and maybe if he was slower, the whole thing could have been avoided.

Bikes can accelerate and decelerate within fairly short distance. So I wonder how the biker didn't brake (or lose control braking) at all prior impact.

So my guess is, his view of the left turning CRV was blocked, and so was the CRV. Then the most likely situation was he was behind a slow vehicle in the passing lane, and he decided to take over from the right.

Hence the incident is really a tragic one.

Motorcycles don't stop that much better than cars. 6 meters shorter stopping distance when going 100km/h is not a whole lot. And thats if the rider is able to use maximum grip of the tires while applying the brakes. Not every rider is that skilled.

Mississauga - Confederation and Huntington .

This was just a while earlier from my way back from work. Looks like this intersection is haunted. There was a major collision just a few weeks back.

I was 3-4 cars behind and didn't have a very good view of it, but I suspect the car we see in this video was going straight ahead at a good speed and had a green.
The girl in Toyota did not judge the gap and went for a very badly calculated left turn. Both drivers seemed to be in complete shock.
The guy's car literally flew in air a good 2-3 feet and he was so shocked that he did not even apply brakes and just let his car roll.

Honestly, I was just praying throughout this incident that he does not roll into me.
