THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SENSITIVE INFORMATION AND PHOTOS OF THE INCIDENT!
A man was seriously injured last night when his car hydroplaned through a ditch and smashed into a tree in someone’s front yard. The man’s name and age haven’t been released to the public however, it’s believed that he is in his mid-late twenties.
The car was said to be going somewhere between 80KM/H – 100KM/H. The Fort Erie Fire department had to extricate the man from the vehicle and when they pulled the man out his arm and leg were twisted. Currently he is in critical condition at an out of the country hospital.
On June 29th, one of his family members did reach out to me to let me know that he was alive and breathing but still in intensive care. It’s unclear what his health conditions are at this moment. Some people I spoke to on scene said that maybe alcohol was a factor in this accident but it has yet to be proven.
Lastly just to clear this up a little bit, there’s posts all over Facebook saying that there was another vehicle and such. Those aren’t true. From the pictures seen below, you can tell that it was just one truck and it’s been confirmed that the truck was occupied by one person only.
