BELLEVILLE – The start of 2018 didn’t start out the best for five people involved in a single vehicle collision on Highway 7, just west of Kaladar.
All five passengers were reported to have sustained injuries when a westbound silver Mercedes hit a guide rail and rolled down an embankment on New Year’s Day.
The accident occurred at 6:10 a.m. near Beatty’s curve in the Addington Highlands Township .
A 17-year-old female passenger was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, while the other four passengers were released from the hospital.
