Driver suffers life-threatening injuries in single-vehicle collision


The Windsor Police Service is investigating a single-vehicle collision that sent one person to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At approximately 5:45 a.m. this morning, police responded to the 400 block of Erie St. after a report of a vehicle that left the roadway and struck a stationary monument.

As a result of the collision, the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was sent to hospital with serious injuries. The driver’s injuries were later designated life-threatening, and they were sent to Detroit for further treatment.
