The female driver of an SUV has died of her injuries following a serious collision involving a cement truck.
According to the Chatham Daily News, police say the cement truck was going west on Queen’s Line road on Tuesday morning, near the Highway 401 access ramp, when the incident occurred.
The cement truck reportedly veered suddenly into the eastbound traffic lane and collided with the SUV, which had been travelling east at the time. The cement truck continued moving after the impact, entering the south-side ditch where it came to a stop in a cornfield.
The force of the impact was enough to send the SUV into a spin, landing it in the south-side ditch.
The 55-year-old woman driving the SUV had to be extricated before she could be airlifted to a nearby hospital. According to police, she was later pronounced dead from her injuries.
The driver of the cement truck, a 31-year-old man, sustained minor injuries. He was also taken to hospital for treatment.
Police closed the roadway to all traffic for several hours while investigating the scene of the crash.
The police traffic say the investigation is ongoing but ask anyone with additional information about the crash to contact Const. Lisa Rodger at 519-355-1092.
