Clarington crash sends 19-year-old to hospital with serious injuries

A woman involved in a two-car collision in Clarington was taken to hospital with serious injuries yesterday afternoon.

The woman, driving a black Volkswagen Passat, and a man driving a White GMC pickup truck collided at the Bowmanville Avenue and Concession Road 7 area shortly before 3 p.m January 4.

While the man was uninjured, the woman had to be rushed to a Toronto’s Sunnybrook hospital with serious injuries, despite several “Code Zero” periods yesterday when there were no Durham ambulances available.

While Durham Paramedics did thank York Paramedics for picking up some of the calls yesterday, confirming trips from Markham to Courtice, it is unknown if this collision was one of them.

Acer Tree released a statement the next morning, around 8 am in response to community outreach from people who recognized the truck at the scene. The statement claims the Passat ran a stop sign on Highway 57 resulting in the crash.

The statement also says the two in the truck suffered minor contusions and a broken wrist from the airbags. Acer Tree was told the woman is in stable condition in hospital with broken bones.

The intersection was closed down for several hour as the Durham Police Collision unit collected evidence from the scene, but it has since reopened. Anyone with information regarding the collision can call the DRPS East Division at 1-888-579-1520, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
