A Chatham woman has been charged in connection to a fatal collision back in June that claimed the life of a 60-year-old woman.

According to Chatham-Kent police, around 1 p.m. on June 17, emergency crews responded to a serious crash involving two vehicles on Victoria Road at Gosnell Line near Ridgetown.

Police say the 32-year-old driver from Chatham was driving with a 13-year-old passenger on Gosnell Line when her vehicle collided with another driving northbound on Victoria Road.

The driver of the second vehicle, Barbara Bondy, 60, of Chatham was pronounced dead at the scene. A 60-year-old passenger suffered serious injuries and was taken to London via air ambulance, but was listed in stable condition.
