The collision involved a white Chrysler passenger van that was travelling westbound and a black Chevrolet SUV that was travelling eastbound. Both drivers were transported to a local area hospital to be treated for injuries. The driver of the passenger van was later air lifted to a Toronto area hospital with serious injuries.
