Chatham crash claims two lives

Two Kent Bridge women died in a crash in Chatham yesterday afternoon.

Emergency crews responded to a motor vehicle collision involving three vehicles on Kent Bridge Road at River Line at 2 p.m.

Police say a 20-year-old Bothwell woman was travelling east bound on River Line and came to a stop on Kent Bridge Road to wait for a farm tractor travelling in a south bound direction on Kent Bridge Road.  As the farm tractor was making a turn onto River Line, the other vehicle proceeded into the intersection and struck a third vehicle that was travelling north on Kent Bridge Road.  This caused the third vehicle to lose control and slide sideways into the path of a south bound transport truck being driven by a 53-year-old Seaforth man.

The C.K.P.S. Traffic Management Unit attended and the investigation remains on-going.

As a result of the collision, two Kent Bridge women ages 62 and 63, are deceased.

Police are looking for any witnesses to assist with the investigation.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable Ron Tricker at ront@chatham-kent.ca or 519-463-6600 extension #81784.  Anonymous callers may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and are eligible for a cash reward.
