Driver transporting horse trailer found with no vital signs north of Napanee
A man driving a pickup truck that seemingly struck a tree was found with no vital signs by emergency crews north of Napanee.
According to Bill Hammond, deputy chief of the Napanee fire department, several emergency crews were called to Buttermilk Falls Road east of Deseronto Road in Roblin, Ont., on Wednesday afternoon to respond to a collision.
Hammond said that when emergency response teams arrived, the 65-year-old driver was found with no vital signs. He was rushed to the hospital.
Although the vehicle was transporting a horse trailer, there were no horses inside the trailer at the time of the collision.
A neighbour nearby came out to assist. Hammond said the neighbour was recovering from a heart attack, so when he arrived on the scene, he began to suffer from chest pains. He was treated by paramedics at the scene of the collision.
OPP are investigating and could not comment on the state of the driver’s injuries.
