Teen girl airlifted to hospital after Hwy. 9 crash

ORANGEVILLE, Ont. – A 17-year-old girl was airlifted to the Hospital for Sick Children with life-threatening injuries after a three-vehicle crash on Hwy. 9 near Orangeville.

Provincial police say a Chrysler Intrepid travelling with three occupants crossed over the centre line into the eastbound lane, side-swiping a Toyota Prius before colliding head-on with a Kia Optima shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday.

A 17-year-old girl was airlifted to SickKids with life-threatening injuries. Three people — two occupants of the Chrysler and the occupant of the Kia — were transported to hospital with serious injuries, police said.

The cause of the collision has not been determined, police said. No charges have been laid.

Hwy. 9 was closed between the 7th Line and 8th Line of Amaranth Township, west of Orangeville, for several hours for an investigation. It has since re-opened.
