Windsor Police are seeking the assistance of the public in obtaining information regarding a collision involving a motorcycle two weeks ago in the south end of the city.

At 9pm on Monday March 12th, a 22 year old man was operating a Honda motorcycle westbound on Ouellette Place approaching the merge from Dougall Avenue. As the motorcyclist approached the merge in the curb lane, a gold coloured four door Oldsmobile pulled out from Dougall Avenue directly in front of the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was able to swerve to his left and miss the vehicle, however he struck the median and crashed.

The motorcycle landed on top of the rider causing serious but non-life threatening injuries. The rider was transported to Hotel Dieu hospital where he was treated for his injuries. The Oldsmobile failed to remain at the scene of the collision and was last seen traveling southbound on Dougall Avenue.

The occupants of the Oldsmobile were described by witnesses as an elderly male driver and an elderly female passenger. Police are requesting that anyone who may have witnessed the collision or has any information regarding the occupants of the Oldsmobile to call the Windsor Police Traffic Unit at 519-255-6700 ext 4211 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477).
