Car accidents: 3 injured in Ontario crash

A two-car collision on the morning of Dec. 23 has sent one young man to a local hospital, according to police. Ontario Provincial Police, who are responsible for responding to car accidents, reported to the scene around 8:00 a.m. So far, they have not filed charges against either driver involved in the crash, but they have asked the support of the community in determining with more clarity what caused the crash. 

The accident report is sparse as of this writing, but it has been confirmed that two vehicles were involved in the crash at the intersection of Jellyby Road and County Road 15 near Augusta. It appears that three people, two from one car and one from the other, were injured in the accident. An 18-year-old male was airlifted to a local hospital with serious injuries after being extricated from the vehicle using hydraulic rescue equipment. The injuries sustained by the other two individuals are currently unknown. 

The road remained closed for several hours as police conducted their investigation. So far they have not commented on the details of the crash. They have also not speculated publicly about a possible cause, but it does not appear they have ruled out recklessness, negligence or intoxication at this time. 

Too little information is currently available to make an accurate guess as to the outcome of the Ontario police investigation. Car accidents whose causes are a mystery are always investigated until a cause has been identified, however, and this incident should be no different. Regardless of the outcome, the injured parties may be entitled to file personal injury suits against the driver or drivers who contributed materially to the crash, which may be clarified by further information provided by police.
