A vehicle traveling the wrong way on a busy Oshawa street caused some temporary chaos but no serious injuries.
According to Durham Regional Police, at around 5:35 p.m. on Jan. 2, an Uxbridge teenager was driving northbound on Park Road when he claims his GPS advised him to turn left onto King Street West, which is a one-way multi-lane road for eastbound traffic only.
As the driver headed westbound, he approached an eastbound pickup truck in the northernmost lane.
The 38-year-driver of the truck veered to the right to avoid a head-on collision, striking an eastbound SUV, which flipped onto its side, trapping the 83-year-old female driver inside.
Paramedics and firefighters arrived and were able to get the women out of the vehicle.
She was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
The 18-year-old Uxbridge man was charged with careless driving.
