Two vehicles collided head on near Whitney on Sunday afternoon.
Constable Catherine Yarmel of the Killaloe OPP says that yesterday, at around 3:20 PM, a call was dispatched about a collision involving a pickup truck and a passenger car.
She says the incident happened on Highway 127, South of Highway 60 in South Algonquin Township.
She revealed that the 28-year-old male, driver of a pickup truck, was headed northbound on Highway 127. The Gatineau man then collided with a 66-year-old female from Southgate Township who was travelling south.
She says the female driver of the car was transported to the hospital suffering from serious injuries while the female passenger of the pickup truck, who also went to the hospital, suffered from minor injuries.
A section of Highway 127 was shut down for approximately 6 hours and it has since been reopened. The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
