Seven people were injured in a two vehicle crash southwest of Millbank Thursday afternoon.

Perth County OPP officers were dispatched just before 4:30pm to the scene at the intersection of Perth Road 121 and Line 67.

An investigation revealed that a minivan was southbound on Perth Rd. 121 approaching Line 67 when it collided with a tractor-trailer loaded with gravel that was westbound on Line 67.

The impact caused both vehicles to end up in a soybean field southwest of the intersection.

A male child and an adult male were taken by air ambulance to a London hospital. The remaining two children and three adults, including the van driver, were transported to local hospital by ambulance.

The 34-year-old van driver from Perth South was later moved to a London hospital for further treatment.

The 23-year-old North Perth driver of the transport truck was uninjured.

Charges are pending.
