A woman was left trapped in her vehicle with serious injuries Monday after driving into a pole east of Kitchener.
The collision occurred around 2 p.m., on Ebycrest Road between Victoria Street and Bridge Street.
Only one vehicle was involved in the crash. Waterloo Regional Police say it was headed northbound on Ebycrest.
“For unknown reasons, it lost control and exited the road … and struck a hydro pole,” said Sgt. John Nymann.
An air ambulance was called in to take the driver – said by police to be a young woman from Guelph – to a hospital in Hamilton.
Tuesday morning Waterloo Regional police said the woman had improved to "serious, but stable condition".
Ebycrest was closed Monday for approximately four hours.
Police are still investigating the crash. Ebycrest was covered in snow and conditions were windy at the time of the crash, but it was not immediately clear if weather was a contributing factor.
