A 39-year-old Aurora man has been charged in relation to a crash on Bayview Avenue last month that left a 35-year-old female motorcyclist dead and another rider seriously injured.

At 8:05 p.m. on July 8, a 35-year-old woman was riding a 2010 Honda CBR600 motorcycle northbound on Bayview Avenue, near the Beltline Trail, police said.

A 46-year-old man was also heading north alongside her, riding a 2014 BMW motorcycle.

Investigators say a driver of a 2016 Honda Accord positioned north of them on Bayview attempted to make a U-turn into the southbound lanes of Bayview and both motorcyclists collided with him.

The 35-year-old woman was rushed to a hospital trauma centre and was pronounced dead a short time later.

The 46-year-old man suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Accord was charged with one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

He is expected to appear in court at College Park on Oct. 5.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-1900.
