GRANT’S CORNERS – A woman in her 20s has been taken to hospital by ambulance after a single vehicle crash on a county road bordering Cornwall and South Stormont.

SD&G O.P.P., South Stormont firefighters and Cornwall-SDG Paramedic Services were called to a section of County Road 19 between County Road 19A (South Branch Road) and County Road 44 (Headline Road) around 11:45 a.m. Friday.

A GMC extended cab pickup truck had entered the deep west ditch and struck a culvert, launching it over a raised driveway before reentering the ditch and striking a utility pole.

It appeared the truck had failed to negotiate the curve in the road. The force of the collision had deployed the airbags.

Police say the 22-year-old woman driving was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

A young German Shepherd, who was also in the truck, appeared to be unharmed and was being held on a leash by people on site.

Traffic in the area was slowed down while a towing company pulled the truck out of the ditch.

A police investigation is ongoing.
