Two women were taken to hospital Wednesday after a collision at Ellice Avenue and Erin Street where a semi-trailer has crashed into a building. 

Police say the collision happened at 5:50 a.m. A semi truck was driving southbound on Erin Street when police say a car crossed its path at Ellice Avenue. 

Const. Rob Carver said police believe the semi truck driver swerved to avoid the car and crashed into a nearby building.
