Guelph Police Traffic Investigators are looking into the circumstances surrounding a serious motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle on November 22, 2012. At 5:50pm emergency services were notified of a collision between a pick-up truck and a motorcycle on Woolwich Street, south of Woodlawn Road.

A 1979 Yamaha motorcycle being operated by a 23 year-old Guelph man was travelling northbound on Woolwich Street north of Marilyn Drive. At the same time, a full size 2005 Chevrolet pick-up truck being operated by a 62 year-old Guelph man was attempting to exit the parking lot of 763 Woolwich Street (the former Dairy Queen).
