Waterloo Region, Ontario – Members of the Waterloo Regional Police Service's Traffic Services Unit are investigating a motor vehicle collision in Wellesley Township.

On November 23, 2022, at approximately 5:45 p.m., emergency services responded to Line 86, west of Macton, for reports of a collision.

Through the initial investigation, police determined that a Dodge Caravan was travelling west on Line 86 towards Listowel when it was struck by a Chevrolet pickup truck travelling east towards Macton that had crossed the centre line.

The resulting collision caused both vehicles to spin and come to rest off of the highway.

The driver of the Dodge, a 76-year-old Bruce County female, was transported by air ambulance to an out-of-region hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Chevrolet, a 20-year-old Wellesley Township male, was also transported to an out-of-region hospital by Region of Waterloo Paramedic Services with non-life-threatening injuries.

Line 86 was closed for several hours for the investigation. The road has since been reopened.

The investigation is ongoing by the Traffic Services Unit and charges are anticipated.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or may have dash camera video footage is asked to call the Waterloo Regional Police Service's Traffic Services Unit at 519-570-9777, extension 8856.
