A serious collision at a construction site on Highway 12 near Midland led to multiple injuries, including one person being airlifted to a Toronto-area trauma centre.

The three-vehicle crash on Simcoe Road 93, one kilometre north of Highway 12, was reported June 5, at around 1 p.m.

One of the vehicles left the roadway as a result of the collision. Four people were sent to hospital, with one of them taken by Ornge Air Ambulance to a Toronto-area trauma centre.

The area where the collision took place is a construction zone.

A section of Simcoe Road 93 between Highway 12 and Yonge Street was closed but has since reopened.

The matter remains under investigation. No charges have been laid at this time.
