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.
