(TOWN OF ERIN, ON) - On September 25, 2018 at approximately 9:30 p.m. a Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer patrolling Wellington Road 124 came across serious head-on collision near Fifth Line, Erin. A west bound SUV and an east bound sedan had collided at a curve in the road. A passerby had pulled one driver, a 74-year-old man from Erin, from the sedan. The driver of the SUV, a 53-year-old Erin man, was trapped. As the officer and two passersby attempted to pull the semiconscious man from the SUV it erupted into fire. The man was narrowly pulled from the vehicle suffering injuries including smoke inhalation.

Town of Erin Fire & Emergency Services attended and extinguished the fire. Guelph-Wellington Paramedics Service also attended and provided medical treatment. The 74-year-old driver was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the collision is currently being investigated. The roadway was closed for a few hours but is now open.
