(NORTH PERTH, ON) - On August 10, 2020, at approximately 6:00 p.m. The Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Perth Road 140 and Perth Line 91 in the Municipality of North Perth. It was reported that a tractor trailer and a Sport Utility Vehicle (S.U.V.) had collided at the intersection, and that three occupants in the S.U.V. were seriously injured.

Wellington County OPP, Wellington County Emergency Medical Service, Perth County Paramedic Services and Mapleton Fire also responded to the collision. A passenger in the S.U.V. was pronounced dead at scene, and the other two occupants of the S.U.V. were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer did not require medical treatment.
