A 29-year-old woman was airlifted to a trauma centre after the car she was driving was hit by a dump truck in Pickering, police say.

Durham Regional Police said it happened on Thursday at around 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of Taunton and Whites roads.

“Upon arrival, officers observed a white Mercedes and red Freightliner dump truck with trailer off the roadway,” police said.

The Mercedes was reportedly travelling west on Taunton Road and made a left turn onto Whites Road when it was hit by the dump truck, which was travelling east, police said.

The woman driving the Mercedes suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to a Toronto-area trauma centre. Police said Friday morning that her condition has since been upgraded to stable.

The dump truck driver, meanwhile, was not injured.
