On Friday at 4 p.m., a two-vehicle collision on Hwy. 17 at Leech Road required the Dryden ambulance, police, and fire rescue services. Together, they worked to extricate, treat and transport one person to the Dryden hospital with injuries.

On arrival the fire rescue company members were required to extricate one person with the Jaws of Life equipment, and assist paramedics with removal to the ambulance.

A pumper company assisted OPP with traffic control, fire protection for extrication and debris clean up off the highway.
