OPP say the two-vehicle collision happened on Friday evening on Highway 89.

A head-on collision on Highway 89 has claimed the life of a 67 year old Southampton woman.

Dufferin OPP say just after 7:45 pm Friday (21st) Dufferin Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and Rosemont District Fire Department attended a collision on Highway 89 near the 3rd Line.

Police say the two vehicle collision involved a transport truck hauling logs, traveling westbound, and a minivan, travelling eastbound. From the initial investigation police say it appears the minivan crossed the centre line, for reasons unknown, and struck the tractor trailer.

Police identified the minivan driver as Jennifer Poet of Southampton who was pronounced deceased at the scene, while the driver of the tractor trailer was not physically injured.

 The Traffic Collision Investigation Unit from the OPP was brought in to investigate and the road was closed for several hours. No charges have been laid at this time and the investigation continues.
