Road closes after apparent hydro pole crash near Kitchener school
Waterloo Regional Police have released details of a suspect vehicle in connection with a fight on Tuesday night in Kitchener.

Police say they were called to an area near Northforest Trail and Glasgow Street for a report of a fight at around 8:30 p.m.

Waterloo Regional Police said the 17-year-old male driver was travelling toward Block Line Road when he lost control, striking the pole and the portable. There were four other teens in the car — two other 17-year-old males, a 17-year-old female, and a 16-year-old male. Police said all are St. Marys students.

In that case, police say five men approached a trio of victims in Northforest Park and demanded personal property.

Emergency crews were called to Lennox Lewis Way alongside St. Marys High School at about 1:15 p.m., where they found a Volkswagen resting against the portable. A street light, sheared off at the base and broken in two, lay across the road.

Several schools in the area were placed under lockdown as police investigated the incident, which occurred near the grounds of Ressurection High School.

KITCHENER — A teenaged driver lost control of a car outside his Kitchener high school on Wednesday, shearing off a light standard, striking a portable classroom and sending three of his passengers to hospital.

KITCHENER – A Kitchener road was closed after a car left the roadway and hit a utility pole outside a Kitchener school on Wednesday afternoon.

Three passengers in the back seat were taken to hospital, and the female was later transferred to a hospital outside of Waterloo Region with serious injuries. The other two passengers had minor injuries.

The pole was also knocked down in the crash. It could be seen lying next to the vehicle, partially on the road.

Grade 9 student Dominic Gibb was inside the portable at the time of the crash. He says it sounded like a truck hitting the wall.

Police initially told CBC Kitchener-Waterloo no major injuries were reported, but later issued a release saying two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries and a female passenger was taken to an out-of-region hospital with serious injuries.

"I was like, Theres a car coming guys! No one believed me, and then it just hit the light post and came down."

Speed is being considered as the cause of a single-vehicle collision that saw a car hit a cement light post and then a portable at the back of St. Mary's High School in Kitchener Wednesday afternoon.

Two people were taken to hospital with minor inuries, one female passanger was transported to a hospital out of the region with serious injuries.

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board confirmed all teens in the crash were St.Marys students.

Police say it appears a 17-year-old Kitchener boy was driving east on Lennox Lewis Way when he "lost control as the road curved to the left."

The board says that no classes will take place in those portables for the rest of the week as a precaution.
