A Windsor woman is in critical condition after she was ejected from a minivan that collided with a pickup truck and a bridge.

Four other passengers in the minivan, all from Windsor, were treated at Chatham-Kent Health Alliance for moderate injuries. The other three people in the van weren't hurt. The pickup driver, who was alone, also wasn't hurt.
