Neither speed nor alcohol are believed to be factors in the crash, Van Dis said.

The man’s injuries were non-life threatening, Van Dis said, adding that he likely suffered a leg fracture. Canel-Torres was taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital for treatment. He was listed in good condition this morning, according to Jenn VanSkiver, NOCH spokesperson.
