An 81-year-old woman is dead after a crash in Welland, Ont., Wednesday afternoon, according to Niagara police.

Investigators say a Chevy Trax SUV came together with a Chevy Silverado pickup around noon Wednesday in the area of Prince Charles Drive and Fitch Street.

The woman was a passenger in the Trax and died at the scene after the vehicle hit a pole.

It’s believed the SUV, driven by an 83-year-old man, attempted to make a right-hand turn onto Prince Charles Drive when it collided with the Silverado navigated by a 55-year-old man, police say.

The pickup driver was not seriously injured.

An investigation is ongoing.
