A passenger in a pick-up truck escaped serious injuries Wednesday night when the vehicle he was traveling in careened into a ditch along Highway 61.
OPP called to the scene, just south of Hacquoil Road, said there were three people in the pick-up, which left an arc of thick skid marks on the newly paved highway as it veered off the road and through the underbrush, coming to rest on its wheels.
Police said all three went to hospital, though two were walking around and did not appear to be seriously hurt. The third did suffer non life-threatening injuries.
According to a witness, the pick-up was driving southbound on the highway and attempted to pass two slower-moving vehicles ahead of it. The first vehicle, towing a trailer, attempted to make a left-hand turn as the yellow pick-up began the passing maneuver. The truck clipped the first vehicle and swerved to avoid further damage.
Police said charges are pending, though could not say who would be charged in the incident.
The investigation continues.
