Motorcycle Accident Today Hamilton, Death – Traffic was flowing freely on the freeway when James Tucker claimed to have noticed something out of the corner of his eye while operating his transport truck. On Tuesday morning in Hamilton, a 39-year-old Cambridge truck driver reported, “I saw a motorcycle in the air.”
Tucker asserted that he had pulled over his truck and sped over to the collision. The crash happened about 8:30 in the morning, according to Hamilton police. Both lanes were closed early on. Authorities claim that the eastbound lanes opened at 9 a.m. while the westbound lanes opened about 3:30 p.m.
Dave Thompson, the director of Hamilton Paramedic Services, reported that a man in his 70s who was taken to a local trauma facility was in “critical life-threatening condition with life-altering injuries.” According to Tucker, the rider on the motorcycle was still breathing when he was approached.
“He’s alive!” I shouted, Tucker recounted. He asserted that he tied a belt over the motorcycle driver’s leg in an effort to staunch any bleeding. He also claimed that an OPP officer and an off-duty paramedic tried to help. Thompson did not confirm those specifics, but she did state that a Hamilton paramedic who was not on duty aided and that an SUV and motorcycle crashed.
A second male, believed to be in his 60s, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, according to Thompson. It is unclear what caused the crash. A drone was flown nearby as part of the inquiry, according to Hamilton police. Additionally, starting on Friday, The Linc will be closed for three days in order to complete repairs.
