A Nepean woman remains in critical condition following a collision on Calabogie Road in McNab-Braeside Township, west of Ottawa, on Friday afternoon.

The 58-year-old was a passenger in an SUV travelling north shortly after 3 p.m. Friday when the vehicle crossed into the southbound lane and collided head-on with another vehicle, the Renfrew County detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police said in a new release.

She was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and was still in critical condition as of Saturday morning, police told CBC.

The driver of the SUV, a 60-year-old man, also from Nepean, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 40-year-old Kanata man, well as his passenger, a 39-year-old Kanata woman, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are investigating why the SUV crossed into the other lane.

A section of Calabogie Road was closed to traffic until late Friday night, but has since re-opened.
