Officers responded to a report of a collision involving a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle just before 5:30pm. One driver and one passenger were transported to a local hospital, where they were then transported by Ornge to a Toronto-area trauma centre with life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported at the scene. Emily Park Road was closed from Grassy Road to Valley Road for several hours.

With Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month underway in May, the OPP is reminding motorcyclists and other motorists to be responsible, defensive, attentive, and alcohol/drug-free drivers throughout the riding season. Motorcyclists are reminded to wear bright, protective equipment and clothing to increase their visibility to other motorists. Every driver doing their part will help ensure Ontario citizens and visitors have the safe, enjoyable summer that awaits them!
