It appears a left-hand turn caused a dangerous crash in Pierrefonds late Monday evening.

The 36-year-old motorcycle rider was pinned underneath the car. Neighbours and witnesses were able to pull the man free before paramedics arrived.
He was taken to hospital and is in critical condition with severe injuries, while the driver of the car was taken to hospital and treated for shock.
