The driver of the pickup truck, age 44, has since been charged with impaired driving in connection with the crash, which took place shortly before 1 a.m. on Highway 17.

“The driver of the pick-up truck was transported to the local hospital, with serious but non-life-threatening injuries by ambulance,” police said in a news release.

“No other injuries were reported.”

The pickup truck driver is charged with impaired driving, dangerous driving and having control of a vehicle with cannabis readily available.

The accused was released and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on Dec. 13 in Sudbury.

The driver was issued a 90-day driver's licence suspension and the vehicle was impounded for seven days.
