ATV RIDER AIRLIFTED FOLLOWING AN MVC IN TRENT HILLS

It was just before 3 PM today that emergency services were called to the area of Concession Rd 8 W and CR-25 for a report of an MVC.

A Kia sedan was travelling westbound on Concession Rd 8 W west of CR-25 when it left the roadway and struck an ATV. The rider of the ATV was pinned between the ATV and the sedan by the leg.

At the time the ATV was being used to clear snow for a driveway.

Upon emergency services arrival the vehicle was moved away from the ATV so Northumberland Paramedics could assess the patient.

One person was transported with severe but non life-threatening injuries to a local hospital. Ornge was called to assisting with transporting the victim to a Toronto area trauma centre.

The Kia sedan was equipt with a dash camera that will be used to assist with a police investigation.

At this time a TTCI (a member of the OPP who is trained in collision reconstruction and investigation) will be responding to the scene. The scene remains active, and Concession Rd 8 W remains closed for a police investigation between Richardson Rd and CR-25.

A further update will become available as soon as we have one. Please avoid the area.
