MORRISBURG — A head-on collision has closed a portion of County Rd. 2 in Morrisburg this morning.

Two wrecked vehicles were spotted near the Merkley Street intersection, with an SD&G OPP police cruiser also on scene.

Both drivers were alone in their vehicles and both were sent hospital with injuries described as serious but non-life threatening.

Preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 6:50 a.m., the adult male driver of a westbound passenger vehicle crossed into the east lane on County Rd. 2, colliding head-on with another passenger vehicle, according to the SD&G OPP.

Local officers, assisted by OPP Traffic Collision Investigators (TCI), continue to process the scene.
