Two accidents on Friday and Sunday left one dead and five injured in Kingsville and Windsor.
In Kingsville, a fatal collision occurred around 8:30 a.m. on Friday, May 6 involving two pickup trucks at the intersection of Road 6 East and Graham Side Road.
According to investigators, a Ford F-150 was traveling northbound on Graham Side Road and collided with a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 that was traveling westbound on Road 6 East. Stop signs are located on Road 6 East, giving Graham Side Road the right of way at the intersection.
The force of the accident sent both vehicles into a field at the northwest corner of the intersection. They also hit and damaged a hydro pole. The Ford was heavily damaged on the passenger side and the Chevrolet suffered severe front-end damage.
The intersection was closed for more than six hours as police investigated the scene and a hydro crew repaired the damaged pole. Details have not been released about what caused the accident or which driver was killed.
Just two days later, shortly before noon on Sunday, a serious accident on County Road 22 near East Pike Creek Road sent five people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to early reports, a car rear-ended a Chrysler 300, causing it to flip on its roof and trap the vehicle occupants inside. The road was reopened less than an hour later.
Although the causes of these two accidents remain unknown, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) tweeted on Friday that statistics show that the majority of accidents involving death or serious injury occur on sunny days. The tweet mentioned the Kingsville accident and another in Huron county that seriously injured one. It was intended to remind motorists that driving requires your full attention.
