A motorcycle driver is fighting for his life after a two car crash in Ottawa's east end Sunday night.

Emergency crews were called just before 9:30 pm to Walkley Rd. and the 417. Paramedics say the driver of the motorcycle was thrown off his bike and suffered multisystem trauma. He was taken to the trauma centre in critical condition. The driver of the other vehicle wasn't injured.

A heavily damaged bike could be seen in the middle of the road.

Police closed Walkley Rd. for over an hour while they investigated. All roads have since re-opened
