Two collisions barely an hour apart have put two in hospital.
First responders were called to County Road 10 near 20 Sideroad in Essa Township shortly after 2:30 Friday afternoon with reports of a single-vehicle collision. Emergency crews arrived to find a motorcyclist had crashed. The woman was rushed to local hospital and airlifted from there to Toronto with what police describe as life-altering injuries.
Shorlty after 3:30, emergency crews responded to reports a pedestrian was struck on C.W. Leach Road near MacKenzie Pioneer Road in New Tecumseth. An elderly woman was struck by a sedan, according to the OPP, and was rushed to hospital.
The investigation into the cause of both these crashes continues.
