CORNWALL, Ontario – SD&G OPP say a two-truck collision at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday closed a section of County Road 34 at Fassifern.
A Dodge pick-up truck headed westbound on County Road 21 collided with a Chevy pick-up truck travelling north on County Road 34.
SD&G OPP Cst. Joel Doiron said both vehicles crashed into a hydro pole and the Chevy driver had to be airlifted to the hospital.
Doiron also said that there were four people in one vehicle, and just the driver in the other.
Detours were still in place to guide traffic at 4:30 p.m. as Hydro One worked to repair the damage.
“The reason for the prolonged closure was that it involved a hydro pole with a lot of fibre optics,” said Doiron.
Driver error is suspected.
More details will be released Monday.
