It happened at Bloor Street West and Jane Street at around 3 p.m.
“It appears that the motorcyclist was in the left-turn lane to go north on Jane with the dump truck and for some reason that we’re going to get to the bottom of, the dump truck essentially rear-ended and ran over the motorcyclist,” Sgt. Brett Moore told CP24.
The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene, Toronto Paramedic Services said.
“We’re still working on trying to piece together and figure out the cause of exactly what happened here,” Moore said.
