A 4-year-old girl and her father are in hospital after a serious collision in Ajax on Friday morning, police say.
Durham Regional Police said a collision was reported at Ajax’s Tauntan Road West and Westney Road North intersection around 6:15 a.m.
A grey Ford pickup truck heading west and a gold Volkswagen Jetta driving east were involved in a head-on collision, according to police.
Officers said that, as a result, a 37-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
“His 4-year-old daughter was also transported to a Toronto-area trauma unit where she is listed in critical-but-stable condition,” police said Friday.
A second child in the car and the driver of the Ford pickup truck were uninjured.
Police said roads were closed for several hours after the collision while evidence was collected.
