The Russell County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is currently investigating a collision where one of the vehicles failed to remain at the scene.

The incident occurred on Highway 417 westbound shortly after the Limoges exit on Jan. 16 shortly before 7:45 p.m. 

A pick up truck collided with another vehicle that had suddenly stopped on the highway and turned towards the median. The driver of the pick-up truck was transported to the hospital by Prescott-Russell Emergency Medical Services (EMS) with non-life-threatening injuries.

The other vehicle, described as being a tow truck, failed to remain at the scene. This vehicle would have significant damage to the front left side said OPP  Melissa Bouchard, a constable with the OPP on The Sam Laprade Show on Jan. 23. 

"It's rare that we have fail to remain collisions to be honest," she said. "But for this one, we weren't able to gather enough information. We are still waiting for information to come in."

Anyone with dash cam video or information is asked to contact Russell County OPP at 1-888-310-1122. Information can also be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or at www.ontariocrimestoppers.ca
