CTV crews were on scene and report the car was wedged under the trailer part of the truck. The collision was so powerful, the front of the car was sheared up to the driver's seat.

Witnesses said it did not appear the driver of the truck was injured.

Police temporarily shut down Panet Road between Fournier and Dugald while they investigated the crash.
