NEWS RELEASE

SOUTH SIMCOE POLICE

*************************
On Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, South Simcoe Police were kept busy due to inclement weather. Officers responded to a number of collision reports during the afternoon commute and evening hours.

10 Sideroad in Innisfil was closed between the 2nd and 3rd Lines for a brief period, after a car left the road, striking a hydro pole and causing lines to cross the roadway. Crews quickly restored power.

A 56-year-old man from Churchill who was driving the car was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries.

Wind caused a number of power outages and associated alarm calls overnight, but we are pleased to report that we have received no other reports of injury or damage due to the storm.

If you find yourself in a collision where lines are down, do not exit your vehicle. Remain in your car and wait for the all clear from first responders. If you come across lines down on the roadway, do not approach. Call 9-1-1 and wait for help to arrive.
