Provincial police in Oxford County are appealing for information after a reported hit and run crash south of Woodstock.

At around 1:50 p.m. Friday, emergency crews were called to a crash at Norwich Road and Oxford Road 13 in Norwich.

Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Sergeant Ed Sanchuk said one vehicle was struck at the intersection of a four-way stop, and a pick-up truck fled from the area.

“An 18-month old child, a driver and a passenger were taken to hospital,” Sanchuk said. “The passenger was then airlifted to a London area hospital to be treated for injuries.”

The area was closed for over four hours while police investigated the incident.

The OPP continues to search for a grey, lifted pick-up truck that will have sustained significant damage as a result of the crash. The truck was last seen travelling westbound on Norwich Road.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Oxford OPP 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
