BURLINGTON, ON.   Shortly after 9 p.m., YESTERDAY,  a 31 yr old Waterdown man was operating his 2010 Kawasaki Ninja 600cc motorcycle northbound on Guelph Line, north of the QEW. He had a 31 yr old Burlington woman as a passenger.

For yet to be determined reasons, the motorcyclist lost control as he attempted to make a left turn onto westbound Mountainside Drive.  This caused the motorcycle to flip onto its side and eject the riders.

 A 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt being driven by a 42yr old Hamilton man made contact with the motorcycle and the rider in the intersection.  It is unknown at this time if the Chevrolet contributed to the reason as to why the motorcyclist lost control.  The Chevrolet driver was not injured and was released from the scene. 

 Both the motorcycle rider and his passenger suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene.  Due to the fatalities, the Collision Reconstruction Unit (C.R.U.) was called in and took carriage of the investigation.

 Guelph Line was closed in both directions for approximately six hours while the C.R.U. conducted their At-Scene investigation.

Police will not be releasing the names of the decedents at this time.

Any witnesses to this collision are asked to contact the C.R.U. at 905.825.4747 ext.5065.
