Three people taken to hospital following accident in Whitby

Three people remain in stable condition in hospital following a collision in Whitby on Thursday (Jan. 23) morning.

According to the DRPS, officers responded to the collision at Thickson Road and Consumers Drive shortly after 9:45 a.m.

“Witnesses reported a Saturn sedan was southbound on Thickson Road when it swerved to avoid a collision with a northbound vehicle that had started to turn left. The Saturn collided with a traffic signal pole and a pedestrian before coming to rest on the southeast corner of the intersection,” reads a media release from police.

“The pedestrian was thrown into a third vehicle that was turning right from Consumers Drive to go south on Thickson Road. The pole was knocked over and laid across the intersection.”

The 19-year-old driver of the sedan, from Scugog Township, was rushed to hospital and a 55-year-old male passenger from Oshawa was airlifted to a Toronto trauma centre.

“Both remain in stable condition with serious but non-life threatening injuries,” the media release reads.

“The 22-year-old male pedestrian from Oshawa was rushed to a Toronto trauma hospital and remains in hospital care in stable condition. The 62-year-old female driver of the third vehicle was not injured.”

The road was closed for the police investigation, which is still underway.
