“Both driver and the passenger were essentially ejected from the vehicle,” Schmidt said. “They were both taken to  hospital.”

While one occupant may have life-altering injuries, Schmidt said both are expected to survive.

“Speed is likely a factor in this crash,” he told Global News. “I don’t know if the road conditions or weather conditions played a factor in it.”

A police investigation is ongoing.
