Woman killed in New Tecumseth crash

A Sept. 16 car crash claimed the life of a 36-year-old Ontario woman, according to the Ontario Special Investigations Unit. The accident took place in New Tecumseth just before midnight.

According to an SIU press release, on the night of the crash, an officer with the Ontario Provincial Police spotted a Pontiac driving recklessly and started to follow it. The officer temporarily lost track of the vehicle, but he later found it had been involved in a collision with a Volkwagen at the intersection of 20th Sideroad and 5th Line.

The 23-year-old female driver of the Volkswagen suffered undisclosed injuries and was transported to the hospital for treatment. The 36-year-old female passenger in the Volkswagen suffered life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver of the Pontiac, a 23-year-old male from Bradford-West Gwillimbury, was taken into custody following the crash. He has been charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death and failing to comply with a probation order. His next hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24 in Bradford. The SIU investigates cases involving serious injury, death or sexual assault where police officers were present.

When a negligent driver causes a deadly accident, the victim's family has the right to take legal action against the at-fault driver. A personal injury attorney could review the police reports, crash scene investigation results and other evidence to determine if the family has a strong claim. If they do, the attorney might recommend filing a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for the losses that the surviving family members have incurred.
