A man and a woman from Lakeshore were left critically injured after a collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle near Kingsville.

Essex County OPP say a brown Ford struck a Harley Davidson motorcycle at the intersection of Essex County Road 27 and North Talbot Road around 6 p.m. Sunday.

The motorcyclist, a 57-year-old man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. His passenger, a 54-year-old woman also sustained life-threatening injuries.

The Ford was being driven by a 22-year-old man from Romney Ontario; he sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Diane Newman lives across the street and tells CTV Windsor she was outside when she heard the crash.

"I said there's been an accident and my granddaughter and I ran over, looked and smoke and dust were flying and called 9-11" says Newman. "The scene was a mess."

Newman says she was one of a dozen people who helped at the scene, and she claims the female victim lost her leg in the collision.

Family and friends have identified the couple on social media as Paul Thompson and Denise Lucier, asking people to keep them in their prayers.
