A man is in hospital with non life-threatening injuries after a motorcycle and mini van collided on Monday night.

The accident occurred at the corner of Golf Links Road and the Harbour Expressway.
Sgt. Paul Rodeghiero said there was little he could say about the investigation, as he waited for Thunder Bay Police Services’ team of transportation investigators to arrive on scene.

“At this point one male driver was taken to hospital. The injuries are unknown at this time,” Rodeghiero said, his car helping to reroute traffic around the crash scene.

“We’ve got police doing traffic control and our traffic investigators are going to be attending real soon to perform the investigation.” Click here to submit a letter to the editor.

just wondering, where did it say that it was the van's fault? quite honestly, some bikers are MORE dangerous and daring then mini van drivers. It is terrible that someone got hurt, but know the facts before making a judgement.

and maybe someday people on motorcycles will start obeying the law. Many times I have seen motorcycles go in and out of traffic dangerously. Not saying that happened in this incident or that all motorcycle riders are like that but I have seen many that tihnk they own the road and can go as fast as they want around all vehicles.

Oh, and whats with these motorcyclists latly with turning left on a red light? I see it more and more lately.

Turning left on a red light is a necessity for motorcyclists. They can sit on the "magnetic" sensor for days and nothing happens.

With ALL the UNNECESARY "Accidents" that have and will occur I have been One of Several People Wanting and looking into having a MANDATORY Drivers Licence Retest every 10 years. This would be for Every individual Regardless of age or any other fact other than having been licenced for 10 year increments. I Have challenged the road test myself and paid the fee Just to have my driving abilities checked over. I found a few mistakes and have relearned to correct them. Anyone else who is proficient in driving Should have NO Problem with passing the test. Driving is a Privlege and By NO means a Right.

As always everyones a driving expert and of course there is nothing wrong with there skills it's all the other guys. Driving is one of the few things in life we learn to do at a young age learning the very basics and then 40yrs later think we know all there is to know.

I am a passenger on a motorbike and as far as my opinion goes, it is not the vehicles nor the bikes, it is simply the person behind the wheel of any of the two. We all need to be aware of others including the possibility of a child, elder or domestic/wild animal running out! I have witnessed many error type drivers and we have been cut off by many! Many seem to think that a bike can stop in its tracks and that is not the case! A vehicle can stop faster and you do not have to balance it!Finger pointing is pre-mature if you really don't know! I have been cut off by many while driving my own car! People are just in too much of a rush, on the phone,text messaging,or seeing who can go faster! Driving is a privilege and one to be respected by ALL, operating any type mode of transportation!
