A 24-year-old man was seriously injured following a single motor-vehicle collision Wednesday afternoon in Whitby.

A 2008 Volkswagen Jetta was travelling eastbound on Victoria Street East near Hopkins Street just before 2 p.m.  when it lost control and entered the south ditch, where it came to rest on its roof. The driver was transported to a Toronto trauma centre with life-threatening injuries. He remains in serious but stable condition.

Members of the Collision Investigation Unit were called to the scene and Victoria Street between Thickson Rd. S and Brock St. S was closed for several hours so they could collect evidence. The investigation is ongoing.
