Major Mackenzie Drive was closed Monday morning after a collision between a police cruiser and a pick-up truck.
There were minor injuries reported in the crash but York Regional Police closed Major Mackenzie between Yonge and Bathurst streets to allow for a full investigation.
The collision occurred at the Richmond Hill intersection of Bathurst and Major Mackenzie around 4:10 a.m.
Though the injuries were not of a serious nature, the police officer involved in the crash was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. The truck driver did not suffer any injuries.
Officials said they hoped to have the intersection cleared of road blocks before the morning traffic rush.
