Tow truck driver injured while removing crash vehicle

MAMAINSE HARBOUR, ON - A tow truck driver was seriously injured over the weekend while attempting to get a vehicle out of the ditch near Mamainse Harbour.

On Saturday June 23 officers with the Sault Ste. Marie OPP were at the scene of a single motor vehicle crash about four kilometres north of Mamainse Harbour.

A car had attempted to pass other traffic and lost control when it hit the gravel shoulder.

The car skidded across the roadway and rolled over into the ditch.

The two occupants of the car were wearing their seatbelts and were lucky to only receive minor injures.

A tow truck from Sault Ste. Marie attended the scene and was removing the car from the ditch.

The cable attachment on the truck snapped and the hooking mechanism flew back and hit the tow truck driver in the face.

The tow truck driver was taken to Sault Area Hospital by ambulance with serious head injuries.

He has been admitted to hospital and had to undergo surgery.
