Toronto police say motorcycle safety is becoming a concern following two serious crashes in the GTA, and they’re asking drivers of other vehicles to be more aware as they make turns and lane changes.

A 35-year-old woman was killed and a 20-year-old man has life-threatening injuries following two separate collisions on Saturday evening.

In the fatal crash, Toronto police said the woman’s motorcycle went under a car as that driver did a U-turn on the Bayview Extension.

In the other crash, the motorcyclist was heading south on Kipling Avenue, approaching Clement Road north of Eglinton Avenue. At the same time, a 79-year-old man was heading north on Kipling. As that driver turned left onto Clement, the vehicles collided.

Const. Clint Stibbe told 680 NEWS that drivers need to look out for motorcycles.
