Collision injures two, closes bridge

A collision involving two vehicles on the south side of the Norris Whitney Bridge had traffic stopped and the bridge closed for approximately two hours Monday morning.

The driver of the car was trapped and had to be extricated by fire fighters.  The driver of the SUV exited his vehicle on his own but collapsed a short distance away.
Both drivers were transported to Belleville General Hospital where they were treated for their injuries.  The driver of the car remains in hospital with a broken leg.  The driver of the SUV was released.
No charges will be laid as the investigation revealed the collision was weather related.
