The driver of an e-bike was taken to hospital after getting hit by a car in Cambridge on Tuesday.

The crash happened at the intersection of Hespeler Road and Bishop Street North around noon, causing a backup on Hespeler Rd.  

A car travelling southbound was trying to make a left turn onto Bishop St N when it collided with an e-bike travelling northbound on Hespeler Rd.

The driver that was thrown from the e-bike suffered serious injuries and was later air-lifted to a hospital out of the region.

Waterloo Regional Police are investigating and they say charges are pending.
