STORM RELATED CALLS FOR SERVICE – RESULTS

(SD&G) – The adverse weather received yesterday (24Feb16) across the United Counties resulted in several traffic related incidents. Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry (SD&G) and Highway Safety Division (HSD) Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to a total of 72 (Stormont-23, Dundas-15, Glengarry-34) calls for service consisting of collisions, vehicles in ditches/median and downed wires/trees. Injuries resulted in two (2) incidents.

Of note…at approximately 10:48pm, a marked cruiser was struck while stationary at the scene of another collision on Highway 401, South Stormont Township. An SD&G OPP officer and an occupant in the vehicle received minor injuries.

Motorists urged to use cautions…

Today (February 25, 2016) SD&G OPP officers will be conducting vehicle removals on area roads, which resulted from the several collisions investigated yesterday (February 24, 2016). In partnership with towing operators, this may result in temporary lane closures and delays in various areas of Highway 401 throughout SD&G.

Adverse weather continues to affect our area today therefore motorists are urged to drive with care and be aware of emergency personnel tending to scenes.

Eyes on the road, reduce speeds and be cognizant of those on duty…their lives depend on it!!

    hugger Cornwall Police do not like to give out numbers. I’ve asked before. The Kingston Police and OPP for example will give out a weekly breakdown on calls. Cornwall refuses.
