First and foremost, we offer our sincere condolences to the friends and family of the young man that was killed in this Toronto crash.
Unfortunately, we see very often that motorcycle riders are seriously injured or killed when vehicles turn in front of approaching motorcycles. Most often, the drivers of the vehicles claim that they simply did not see the motorcycle. The fact is that motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and may be more difficult to see. Nonetheless, cars should not turn across live lanes of traffic unless they are sure that the path is clear. If your view is obstructed, do not turn. This is particularly important during the summer months, when motorcycles are often out at all hours of the day and night. Many motorcyclists prefer late night rides because it feels safer when there are fewer cars on the road.
