A 12-year-old was taken to a hospital outside of the region with serious but non-life-threatening injuries after a single vehicle collision in Woolwich Township.
It happened over the noon hour Sunday on Hawkesville Road, between Three Bridges Road and Northside Drive.
The child was a passenger in a minivan travelling east on Hawkesville. The driver allegedly travelled off the roadway and hit a hydro pole.
The driver, a 47-year-old Woolwich man, was not injured.
Hawkesville Road had to be closed for several hours so crews could repair the hydro pole.
