Ontario Provincial Police in Huron County have charged a 21-year-old North Huron woman in connection to a deadly multi-vehicle crash in December.

Police said the four-vehicle collision occurred around 8 p.m. on Dec. 5, 2019 along Jamestown Bridge on Brussels Line (Huron County Road #12).

The investigation showed that a car was heading east on Jamestown Road when it entered the intersection at Brussels Line and, police allege, failed to yield to a southbound tractor-trailer.

The tractor-trailer then collided with a bridge and a northbound pickup truck, which was then rear-ended by a northbound SUV, police said.
