Women dragged 3 metres after pickup truck collided with small parked rental truck in Barrhaven
Two women were taken to hospital with serious injuries on Tuesday after a pickup truck crashed into a parked rental truck they were getting equipment from, paramedics say.
It happened at about 11 a.m. in the 100 block of Calderwood Way in Barrhaven, a residential street off Jockvale Road near the Stonebridge Golf & Country Club.
The two women were unloading equipment when a pickup truck crashed into their truck.
The women were dragged about three metres, paramedics said.
A 34-year-old woman was found sitting beside the driver's side door of the rental truck with obvious leg and head injuries, paramedics said.
Her leg was trapped under the rental until bystanders lifted the truck to release her leg. She was taken to hospital in serious condition.
A 30-year-old woman suffered head and rib injuries and was also taken to hospital in serious condition.
The driver of the pickup truck, a 34-year-old woman, suffered an arm injury and was taken to hospital in stable condition.
Ottawa police are investigating, along with Ontario's Ministry of Labour.
