On October 1, 2020 at approximately 1:30 p.m. Huron OPP, Lambton County Paramedic Services, Grand Bend Fire Department and Ornge Air responded to the crash site located at the intersection of Mount Carmel Drive (Huron County #5) and Grand Bend Road (Huron County #81).
The preliminary investigation has determined a compact vehicle was westbound on Mount Carmel Drive when the driver failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. The vehicle left the roadway, struck the ditch on the north side, collided with trees and ultimately caught on fire.
The single occupant was extricated from the vehicle by fire and was transported from the scene to hospital by air ambulance.
The driver currently remains in hospital with life threatening injuries.
