Guelph police say a woman had to be airlifted to a trauma centre after she collapsed at Guelph General Hospital while being treated for injuries she suffered in a car crash.
The collision occurred Thursday at around 3:30 p.m. in the area of Eramosa Road and Metcalfe Street.
Police say both drivers were conscious at the scene before being taken to hospital by paramedics.
“Once at the hospital, a female driver in her sixties collapsed and it was discovered she had sustained internal bleeding as a result of the crash,” police said in a news release.
Hospital staff were able to stabilize her before she was transported to an out-of-town trauma centre by Ornge Air Ambulance.
Any witnesses to the collision, who have not already spoken to police, are asked to call the traffic unit at 519-824-1212 ext. 7514.
Police said the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
