A Waterloo resident is being treated in hospital for serious injuries after a car-tractor collision Monday night in Perth East.

The OPP say their investigation determined that a John Deere tractor was moving slowly along Perth Line 43, west of Amulree, when it was hit from behind by a Honda Civic around 8:30pm.

The 78-year-old Waterloo man driving the Civic was badly injured. The tractor driver, a 44-year-old Perth East resident, suffered minor injuries. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage.

The tractor driver has been charged with having improper lights on a farm vehicle.
