The eastbound lanes of the highway were closed since 2:30 p.m. and reopened around 9 p.m.
A 78-year-old man and a 43-year-old man – both the lone drivers in the vehicles – were taken to hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The Leeds County O.P.P. officer was taken to hospital as a precaution.
Since it’s a collision involving an O.P.P. officer where someone has been hurt, the Ontario Special Investigations Unit has taken over the case.
