One person is in critical condition and another has serious but non-life-threatening injuries after a two-vehicle collision in Val Caron late Tuesday night, say Greater Sudbury Police.

The collision occurred at around 11:55 p.m. Jan. 15 south of the intersection of Municipal Road 80 and Valleyview Road. 

Just prior to the collision, a silver two-door Audi was travelling southbound towards Lasalle Boulvard on MR 80 when it crossed over the centre line and collided with a vehicle travelling northbound. 

Both vehicles were extensively damaged as a result of the collision and both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles.

Both drivers were transported to hospital by Greater Sudbury Paramedic Services. 

The 29-year-old man who was driving the Audi at the time of the collision remains in critical condition and the second driver sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers with the Greater Sudbury Police Service Traffic Management Unit are conducting an investigation. The roadway was closed several hours overnight.

The Greater Sudbury Police Service is requesting the public’s assistance in locating any witnesses that may have been in the area at the time and have information about this collision. 

In particular, police are seeking any witnesses that may have seen the silver Audi being operated in an erratic manner in the area prior to the collision.
