A 33-year-old London man is facing several charges after police say the van he was driving struck several vehicles.

Yesterday, just before 7 pm, officers responded to the area of Thompson Road and Pond Mills for a crash involving a white van and 5 other vehicles.

The white van turned left onto Egerton Street and hit a vehicle preparing to turn left onto Hamilton Road.  The van then struck two other vehicles at this intersection.

The van continued southbound on Egerton until it collided head-on with a pickup truck.
A passenger in the first vehicle struck, and the female driver and her child in the pickup truck suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the van had to be extricated by the London Fire Department and was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police estimate the damage at $38,500.
