Police say a person sustained serious injuries after being ejected from a truck during an accident last night in West Kent.
According to Chatham-Kent police, they received a call about 8 p.m. last night to respond to a single motor vehicle accident on Essex Kent Road at Tilbury West-Romney.
A Chevy Silverado was headed southwest when it came to a left-hand bend in the road. It appears the driver was slow to turn and then over-corrected, as the truck went onto the right shoulder, pulled back onto the road, crossing into the oncoming lane and then went into the ditch on the far side of the road.
The force of the impact, police say, caused the vehicle to rotate, ejecting the driver.
Police are still investigating. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact Const. Todd Trahan at 519-352-1092.
