Two killed in crash

The accident involved four vehicles, but police said weather was not to blame.
DEBORA VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter   2004-01-16 03:36:10  

Two people and a dog are dead after a head-on collision involving four cars just south of Wallaceburg yesterday. The weather was cold but clear and the road bare when a northbound car inexplicably crossed the centre line of Highway 40 near Elbow Line at about 1:15 p.m.

The car, with two men and a dog in it, glanced off a southbound car, then slammed head-on into a southbound car, Chatham-Kent police Staff Sgt. Tom Reeve said last night.

A fourth car, also headed south, was struck.

The male passenger of the northbound car, a 44-year-old Chatham-area man, was killed in the collision.

So was a dog in that car.

The driver, a 43-year-old Chatham man, suffered severe internal injuries and was taken to Sydenham District Hospital in Wallaceburg, then airlifted to London.

A 53-year-old Wallaceburg woman driving the second southbound car was also killed.

Their names won't be released until family members are notified.

Autopsies are expected to be conducted today.

The driver and passenger of the first southbound car were uninjured, as was the driver of the third southbound car.

Reeve said the scene was a mess for several hours.

He said police are still sorting out details of the collision but have ruled out poor road or weather conditions as a cause.

Highway 40, Chatham-Kent's busiest north-south corridor, was closed until 9:35 p.m.
