OPP briefs – Three car crash on 7/8 sends nine to hospital

Stratford Gazette

On Friday at 6:23 p.m. OPP officers were called to a three-vehicle crash on Highway 7/8 east of Shakespeare.

A Ford Focus and a Pontiac Grand Prix were travelling west just east of Road 106 when they slowed and stopped for a vehicle entering a laneway. The driver of a westbound Saab came upon the two vehicles but was unable to stop in time. The Saab struck the back of the Grand Prix which in turn struck the Focus.

As a result of the impacts, nine of the 10 occupants involved were transported to Stratford General Hospital where they were treated and released.

The female driver of the Saab, a 28-year-old from Perth South, was charged with careless driving.
