One man was sent to hospital with serious injuries following a collision involving a garbage truck yesterday afternoon.

Middlesex OPP say the collision happened on Westchester Borne, north of the 401. A garbage truck was stopped to pick up garbage, when an SUV rear ended it, causing the vehicle to spin off across the road and partially land in a ditch.

Middlesex OPP continue to investigate and there is no word if charges will laid.
