Two people are in hospital and a third driver escaped unharmed after a three-vehicle crash in Milton on Tuesday morning.
The crash happened on Britannia Road just west of Trafalgar Road around 9:30 a.m.
Halton police say one driver was trying to pass another and collided head-on with a vehicle in the oncoming lane.
Another driver then crashed into the back of the car in the oncoming lane.
The man who was trying to pass had to be extricated from his vehicle. He was taken to Sunnybrook hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The woman who was driving the oncoming vehicle was taken to Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga with minor injuries.
The third driver, who slammed into the back of the woman’s car, was not injured.
The investigation is ongoing.
Police believe the man who was trying to pass the other car is at fault. Weather may have also been a factor in the crash.
No charges have been laid.
