A 31-year-old woman was airlifted to hospital after being flung from the motorcycle she was a passenger on when it struck another vehicle.

The collision occurred around 2:40 p.m. Sunday at University Avenue and King Street in Waterloo.

Initial investigation by police has indicated that the motorcycle entered the intersection on a red signal heading northbound, and collided with an SUV that was heading westbound.

Police say the male driver of the motorcycle fled the scene on foot.

He was reportedly seen flagging down a white Lexus-style vehicle.

Regional police are asking the public to come forward with any details.
