Last night’s blast of winter weather contributed to a single-vehicle collision.

On November 18, at approximately 6:10 p.m., New Glasgow Regional Police, Trenton Fire Department and Emergency Health Services responded to a single motor vehicle collision on the Trenton Connector in Trenton.

The collision occurred when a 2008 Ford Ranger lost control.

Three people were in the vehicle at the time of the collision.

Two males and one female sustained minor injuries. One male and one female were transported by Emergency Health Services to the Aberdeen Hospital for follow up.

The vehicle sustained major damage.

New Glasgow Regional Police Const. Ken MacDonald stated, “Icy road conditions at the time contributed to the Ford Ranger losing control and flipping over on its side, resulting in closing the road for over an hour in both directions.”

Police continue to investigate.
