ESSA TOWNSHIP - At approximately 3:40 pm on Monday, November 20, 2017, members of the Nottawasaga Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), received information of a vehicle that had struck a hydro pole on the Third Line, South of the Fifth Sideroad in Essa Township.

Further investigation revealed that the vehicle involved was described as a black pick-up truck with a ladder on the roof. The vehicle was observed entering the ditch on the east side of the roadway and then hitting a hydro pole. The vehicle then quickly fled the scene.
