Ontario Provincial Police say that on Sept. 15, a Quebec woman lost her life in a T-bone collision near Renfrew. The crash happened at the intersection of Highway 17 and Bruce Street around 11 p.m. The accident forced the closure of the highway overnight, during which time a detour was implemented.
According to authorities, a 47-year-old man was pulling a trailer with a pickup truck in the eastbound lanes of the highway and did not stop at the intersection for a red traffic light. At that moment, a 46-year-old woman was driving north on Bruce Street and passing through the intersection. The pickup truck hit the woman's car on the driver's side.
