Emergency crews were called to eastbound West Hunt Club Road at 7 a.m., where a man had to be taken to hospital with minor injuries after colliding with a vehicle between Merivale Road and Cleopatra Drive.   

Then just after 8 a.m., a man in his 30's was struck on Laurier Avenue between Bank Street and Kent Street.  He was taken to the hospital with a minor lower-body injury.

Finally, around 8:30 a.m., a man in his 50's suffered minor injuries and lacerations, after a collision on Prince of Wales Drive, near West Hunt Club Road.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released and it's not known if any charges will be laid in any of the incidents.
