A 27-year-old Waterloo man was airlifted to a London hospital following a serious crash in Baden.

Regional Police say it happened just after 7 a.m. Wednesday on Erbs Road between Nafziger and Sandhills.

Sgt. Tim Boniface with the WRPS Traffic Branch tells 570 NEWS that two vehicles were involved.

“From witness accounts, it appears the vehicle tried to pass another .. and ended up in the path of an oncoming Volkswagen. They collided head-on, and ended up in the ditch.”

Boniface says an Ornge air ambulance was called in, as a Waterloo man suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Volkswagen, a 52-year-old woman from Shakespeare, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Regional Police say their investigation is ongoing, and charges are pending.

Erbs Road was shut down for several hours between Nafziger and Sandhills while investigators were on scene.

Road conditions are not believed to be a factor in that crash, but they’re reminding motorists to use caution when driving on rural roads during the winter.
