As a result of a motor-vehicle collision involving two vehicles that occurred in Oshawa, three occupants received serious injuries.
On Friday, July 30, 2021, at approximately 11:11 a.m. officers from the East division were called to a serious two-vehicle collision that occurred on Ritson Road North, north of Conlin Road. A silver Chevrolet Cobalt had been travelling north on Ritson Road when it struck a southbound grey Toyota Corolla. It is believed the Chevrolet was attempting to turn left into a private driveway.
