RAMARA TWP - On Monday, Jan. 1, 2018, the Orillia Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a collision involving a Motorized Snow Vehicle (MSV) in Ramara Township.

At approximately 3:30 p.m. the Orillia OPP along with Ramara Fire Department (RFD) were dispatched to a collision on the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) trail in Ramara Township. 

Preliminary investigation reveals two youths were on the same MSV when it left the trail causing the youths to be injured. The youths were then transported to an Orillia area hospital by the County of Simcoe Paramedic Services (CSPS) with non-life threatening injuries.

The Orillia OPP would like to remind MSV operators to operate their machines in a safe manner whether it is on the trails, lakes or fields. Each one of these terrains poses unique risks and drivers must make certain they are safe while participating in this extremely fun winter activity.
