A two-car crash on Highway 17 at Bruce Street just outside of Renfrew late last night has left one person dead.
Deborah Smith, 46, of Campbell’s Bay was killed at the scene when the car she was driving was struck by a pick-up truck.
A 47-year-old Alberta man has been charged with careless driving and failure to stop for a red light.
Highway 17 was closed in both directions since shortly after 11 o’clock last night and detours were in place until the road re-opened this morning around 8 o’clock.
The police investigation continues.
