Rideau Canal Accident
Personal Injury Lawyer Ottawa Ontario, David Hollingsworth
Yesterday, a man was brought to an Ottawa hospital , after he lost control of his vehicle yesterday morning. The accident occurred on Colonel By Drive. The man was driving on Colonel By Drive when he lost control of his car and ended up driving right into the Rideau Canal. The Ottawa accident occurred close to Heron Road Bridge and University Drive in the early morning hours. Thankfully the Rideau Canal had already been drained for winter and had little water in it. The driver was in his late 20s and was alone in the car at the time of the Ottawa accident. Ottawa rescue crews had a difficult time helping him escape and needed to extricate the driver and cut the man’s car open. Thankfully they were able to help bring the driver up from the bottom of the Canal; when he was then rushed to the Ottawa Hospital Trauma Centre in stable condition. He suffered serious personal injuries to his lower body and was treated for exposure to cold. RCMP do not believe that alcohol was involved in the Ottawa accident.
