“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".
