York Regional Police say a 52-year-old woman has died from injuries she suffered in a motorcycle crash in East Gwillimbury on Sunday.

Police say the woman was a passenger on the motorcycle when it collided with a car on Leslie Street just north of Holborn Road at around 4:30 p.m.

Police say the female, who is from the Keswick area, was airlifted to hospital where she died Monday morning.

The man driving the motorcycle suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a Toronto trauma centre by land ambulance.

Leslie Street was closed for several hours while police investigated.

There was also a serious motorcycle crash near Peterborough, the third in a span of a few hours Sunday afternoon.

Last weekend, there were three serious motorcycle crashes in three days, including one on Highway 400 that left a man dead. Since May, there have been more than 20 serious or fatal motorcycle crashes, including one involving an OPP officer whose leg was later amputated.
