Car accidents: 4 Ontario residents injured in crash

A two-car crash just outside of Toronto has sent four people to the hospital with critical injuries, according to local sources. Ontario police typically respond to car accidents in and around the city, where the sight of badly mangled vehicles is all too common. At the moment, police have not filed charges against either of the drivers involved in the crash. 

Officers responded to the accident around 6:30 p.m. in Mono, where the crash took place on Airport Road the evening of Jan. 14. Upon their arrival, they found two severely damaged cars with people trapped inside. Emergency crews worked on the vehicles for an hour and a half, at which time they were able to extricate one person. That individual was airlifted to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto with injuries described as critical. 

A backseat passenger in one of the vehicles, a woman in her 40s, was airlifted to another Toronto hospital with similar injuries. A third individual was rushed to a local trauma centre by ambulance. Police believe speed played a role in the crash, and they are currently seeking the whereabouts of a possible third vehicle they believe fled the scene of the accident. 

Too little information is available at this time to determine the outcome of this investigation. However, car accidents of this type are not taken lightly in Ontario, and the investigation will continue until material contribution to the crash is established for all drivers involved. Even if police do not move forward with criminal charges, the injured parties may have grounds to file personal injury lawsuits against the driver or drivers whose negligence is believed to have materially contributed to the accident.
