Police say they have laid charges in relation to a collision last month that left a 59-year-old female motorcyclist in hospital with serious injuries.

The crash took place Aug. 28 on Regional Road 20 near Streamside Drive in West Lincoln between a blue Hyundai Tucson and a white Harley Davidson motorcycle. 

The motorcyclist, a resident of West Lincoln, was transported to an out-of-town trauma centre for advanced medical care. She remained in hospital on Monday listed in stable condition, Niagara Regional Police said in a news release.

At the time of the collision, police said the driver of the Hyundai was taken to a local hospital for treatment of what were believed to be minor injuries.

On Sept. 13, detectives charged the driver of the Hyundai, a 53-year-old female from Smithville, under the Highway Traffic Act with one count of careless driving causing bodily harm.
