Two people were taken to hospital Sunday morning after a collision in Ottawa's west end. 

Police are investigating the two-vehicle collision, which took place at the intersection of Robertson and Eagleson roads around 11:30 a.m.

As a result, Robertson Road was closed between Eagleson Road and Haanel Drive. It was reopened later Sunday afternoon.

The extent of the two people's injuries is not yet known, police said.

Several collisions across the city, police say 

Ottawa police asked people Sunday morning to drive safely following a number of collisions across the city.

Police said the freezing rain was causing dangerous conditions, and are asking drivers to slow down and keep their distance from other vehicles.  

Several collisions also happened in the city's east end Sunday morning, police said. 

Police responded to collisions at Innes Road and Province Avenue, at Blair and Montreal roads, and at Russell and Walkley roads.

There were no reported injuries in those incidents, police said.
