A 40 year-old-man driving a grey Infinity drove onto the wrong side of the road. This caused him to collide head-on with the mother's blue Dodge Caravan, pushing her vehicle into a light post. The accident occurred on the 800 block of Highland Ave at Willoughby

The street corner was blocked for eight hours while police investigated the scene. It is still not known what caused the driver to swerve. It is not confirmed if he was under the influence of alcohol or speeding.
