LONG SAULT – Two people were transported to hospital by paramedics – one in grave condition – Tuesday night after a collision on County Road 2 in Long Sault.
Police say the two-vehicle crash happened around 6:35 p.m. when an eastbound passenger vehicle crossed the center line and struck a westbound vehicle.
One driver – a 17-year-old boy – has life-threatening injuries while the other – a 29-year-old man – is listed in hospital in critical condition.
SD&G O.P.P. Const. Tylor Copeland told Cornwall Newswatch the roundabout was not a factor in the collision. “It was west of the roundabout,” he said.
Copeland said speed is believed to be a factor.
A section of the highway from Moulinette Road to County Road 12 was closed to traffic. It reopened just before 5 a.m. today (Wednesday).
A police investigation is ongoing.
