A pair of teen girls were taken to hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries Wednesday night after a four-vehicle collision on Skead Road near Radar Road.

A pair of teen girls were taken to hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries Wednesday night after a four-vehicle collision on Skead Road near Radar Road.

Greater Sudbury Police received a call about the collision at around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 30.

According to an email from GSPS spokesperson Kaitlyn Dunn, two teenage girls who were traveling in the same vehicle - driver and passenger - were transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The other drivers involved in the collision sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

The roadway was closed for a few hours while officers were on scene.

Social media posts about the collision started swirling on Wednesday night, with some claiming that a vehicle had stopped and the driver was taking pictures of a moose and was rear-ended.

"Someone was stopped on the road taking a picture of a moose from the driver's seat and they got smoked from behind, killed the moose and the car caught fire," said a comment on a Facebook post asking about the collision.

Greater Sudbury Police have made no mention of any wildlife being involved in the collision and are asking for anyone with information to contact GSPS.

The Traffic Management Unit is investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information to contact GSPS.
