Police had the intersection of Ron McNeil and Higbury Avenue closed down early this
morning while they investigated a fiery collision. The incident took place just
after midnight when a northbound truck made a sudden left turn into the Tim Horton’s
parking lot into the path of a southbound car. The car slammed into the passenger
side of the truck. The truck caught fire shortly after the impact and soon both
vehicles were engulfed in flames. Two adults from the truck and two adults and an
infant from the car were transported to Hospital in London by ambulance. Miraculously
only minor injuries were reported to police. The collision remains under investigation
at this time.
