A 21-year-old Rodney man had to be airlifted to London hospital following a brawl near Canada’s busiest highway.

Elgin OPP say the confrontation between two men happened shortly before 6AM Saturday on Furnival Road at the 401, just north of Rodney.

The victim, who has not been identified, remains in hospital in serious but stable condition.

Constable Troy Carlson says the incident was not a random act of violence.

Carlson couldn’t say whether a weapon was used in the incident, noting it is still early in their investigation.

A 22-year-old Rodney man is in police custody.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the dispute to give them a call at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers @1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
