It was not a good day for traffic flow in Durham yesterday what with the protests, compounded by a rash of accidents.
Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) and emergency services were kept busy.
It started early in the morning when at around 5am, a female was located at Hardwood Avenue South and Kingston Road in Ajax with serious injuries.
She was transported to a Toronto-area trauma centre in life-threatening condition. Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Traffic was closed for the investigation, and the roadway was later re-opened.
Further information will be released as it becomes available. Thank you everyone for your patience, said the police.
