SUMMERSIDE – The condition of a 22-year-old West Prince man who was injured in a head-on collision in Summerside last week is showing improvement.

The Summerside Police Service said Tuesday that the man, who was the sole occupant of a van that apparently crossed the centre line and struck a cement truck, has had his condition upgraded from serious to fair, at Prince County Hospital.

The police investigation into the crash is ongoing; investigators have been waiting for the victim’s condition to improve enough so he can be interviewed.

He had reportedly suffered a serious head injury in the crash and police said his condition was very serious when he was first taken to hospital.

The collision occurred between Small Avenue and Gillespie Avenue last Tuesday.

That section of Water Street was closed for more than an hour as crews worked to clean up debris. 

The driver of the cement truck was not seriously injured.
