The 20-year-old female driver of the Ford Escape was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by New Tecumseth fire fighters. The woman was transported by air ambulance to a Toronto hospital with life threatening injuries.

All three of the 19-year-old men in the Nissan also sustained serious injuries. The driver was transported by ambulance to a Toronto hospital, one passenger was taken by air ambulance to a Toronto hospital and the other passenger was taken to a local hospital.
