Five people were treated for injuries after a serious crash Friday night near Consecon, Ont., Ontario Provincial Police say.
Police were called to the area of County Road 1 and Alexander Road, southwest of Belleville, Ont., shortly after 9 p.m. Friday.
"There was definitely a large emergency response to this scene," said Bill Dickson, a spokesperson for the force.
"But I'd like to point out that there were no life-threatening injuries in this collision. So it was serious, but it could have been worse."
Paramedics treated all five people in the two vehicles, taking three to local hospitals.
One adult passenger was rushed to a hospital in Kingston, Ont., after sustaining more serious injuries. A two-year-old was taken to Kingston as well, before being transferred to a hospital in Toronto.
Dickson said the cause of the crash is still being investigated.
