The head injury sustained fortunately, according to police, is not life-threatening.

The collision also prompted the police again to take care on the roads given the freezing conditions.

“With the temperature set to drop again, what is already out there will freeze. Slow down, remember your stopping distance, and expect the unexpected, especially ice.”
