A provincial police officer has been airlifted to Toronto hospital after crashing an unmarked cruiser southwest of Barrie on Wednesday.

Constable Kelly Daniels with the OPP says the injured officer is expected to live, but remains in serious condition.

The crash happened around 10 in the morning on County Road 10 at the 4th line of Essa south of Angus.

Police say the vehicle left the road for an unknown reason, and struck a tree.

There's no word yet on if the officer was involved in an investigation at the time of the crash, but they were on-duty at the time.

Police are still looking for witnesses to the collision.

    I live on County road 10 and I see the OPP speeding all the time with no lights or sirens.

    I hope they recover quickly. Also, the lack of respect you people are showing for an injured officer is disgusting.
