Five people, including two children, were taken to hospital last night following a two-vehicle collision in the Town of Innisfil.

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, at approximately 5:30 p.m., the South Simcoe Police Service, Innisfil Fire and Rescue Service, and County of Simcoe Paramedic Services, responded to a two-vehicle collision in the area of 10 Sideroad and 6th Line.

A vehicle travelling westbound on the 6th Line failed to stop for a stop sign and collided with a vehicle travelling southbound on 10 Sideroad.

The westbound vehicle then struck a utility pole, trapping the four occupants.  A man and woman, both aged 38, and two children, aged 5 and 8, all from Woodbridge, were freed by firefighters.

The man and 8-year-old child were transported to a local hospital where they were treated and released. The woman and 5-year-old child were airlifted by Ornge to a Toronto trauma centre where they are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.  

The sole occupant of the southbound vehicle, a 60-year-old woman from Bradford, was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released.

Roads were closed for close to nine hours while Traffic and Marine Unit officers completed a collision reconstruction and crews replaced the utility pole.  

The investigation is ongoing.
