A late night head-on collision on Montreal Road involving two vehicles between Hwy. 174 and Bearbrook Road has cost the life of one individual and sent four others to hospital.

The Ottawa Fire Service reveived a 9-1-1 call at around 11:20 p.m., and crews had to extricate one person from one vehicle and two people from another.

Firefighters had to remove the doors on both vehicles in order to gain access to the patients.

Authorities say one of the vehicles contained seven people while the driver was the sole occupant of the other car.

Initial reports from paramedics suggested the two most serious injured people was a man his late 20s who suffered a critical head injury and pelvic fracture, and a 92-year-old woman who suffered multiple fractures to her arm, leg and pelvis and was also taken to a trauma centre.
