Four people were sent to hospital, one with life-threatening injuries, after a head-on collision on Highway 6 Saturday afternoon.
Investigators have determined that a black sedan heading south on the highway near Hagersville crossed into the opposite lane and plowed into a beige minivan.
An off-duty firefighter witnessed the crash and called 911.
Firefighters and paramedics from Haldimand County, as well as Six Nations paramedics, worked to free two 66-year-old Brampton residents from the minivan and a pair of Six Nations residents, ages 21 and 23, from the sedan.
The driver of the minivan was flown to an out-of-town hospital in an Air Ornge ambulance with life-threatening injuries, while the other three victims were taken to a local hospital with what police described as “serious but non-life threatening injuries.”
Highway 6 between First Line and Second Line was closed for six hours while collision experts assessed the scene. It is not yet known why the sedan veered into oncoming traffic.
The investigation continues.
