A driver in hospital and stretch of road just outside on the town of Uxbridge remains closed after a transport truck and a garbage truck crashed into each other.

The vehicles collided on Lake Ridge Rd, just to the southeast of the town. One of the drivers was injured in the crash and was rushed to a Toronto trauma center.
