Car crashes well off Highway 11SB after suddenly crossing from left lane

Posted March 21, 12.40pm: Just minutes ago a car crashed well off Highway 11 SB across from the Muskoka Airport. A driver stopped to call Muskoka News Watch to say “it looked like the car was airborne before crash landing” in front of the Hart of Muskoka Motel on Winhara Road, directly across from the airport. Emergency responders are on scene and the car is said to appear totalled. There is no official OPP report yet, but the man who called in the tip said the car was seen driving at high speeds just before the crash, then swerved from the left lane and became airborne before landing several feet from the highway’s right southbound lane.

It may be bright and sunny out today but there are still slippery spots on our highways.
