Two people have been airlifted following a four-vehicle collision on Hwy. 35 south of Lindsay, Ont., on Tuesday morning.
City of Kawartha Lakes OPP around 8 a.m. responded to a collision on the highway at the intersection of River Road, about seven kilometres south of Lindsay. Three vehicles were found on the roadway and a fourth was in a ditch.
Several people were treated at the scene before being taken to Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay.
Ornge spokesperson Josh McNamara tells Global News Peterborough that two air ambulances were dispatched around 8:17 p.m. to the Lindsay municipal airport for modified transports. There they transported two patients — a woman (age currently not known) and a man in his 50s — to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto with critical injuries, he said.
The highway is closed between Tower Road and Highway 7, while the OPP conducts its investigation.
