Three people were killed in two separate motorcycle incidents on Montreal's south shore Sunday evening.

In the latest incident, a man and his teenaged daughter were killed in a crash on Highway 30 West near Candiac.

Around 6:30 a.m., their motorcycle slammed into a car that had stopped on the highway to let some ducks pass.

The man in his 50s died soon after the accident.

The 16-year old girl was taken to hospital but died overnight.

The teen's mother had been following behind on another motorcycle.

In an earlier incident, a 59-year-old man was killed after losing control as he tried to turn on to an exit off Route 132 in Longueuil, police said.

Police believe speed may have been a factor in that accident.
