A motorcyclist is in life-threatening condition after he was ejected in a single-vehicle collision in Oshawa Tuesday night, Ontario Provincial Police say.

Emergency crews responded to reports of a crash on the Highway 401 eastbound ramp to Ritson Road at 7:30 p.m.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the motorcyclist was airlifted to a trauma centre in life-threatening condition after being thrown off his bike.
