Police say a 2005 Nissan Murano heading east on Talbot Street collided with a tractor-trailer that was heading west on Talbot Street. The force of the crash, police say, caused the SUV to roll and come to rest on its roof on Talbot Street’s south sidewalk.

The SUV driver, the lone occupant, had to be extricated by members of the Aylmer fire department and they, as well as EMS, “performed life-saving measures on the scene to no avail,” police say.
