Two killed in crash near Kent Bridge



A three-vehicle crash on Kent Bridge Road at River Line claimed the lives of two Kent Bridge women Tuesday afternoon.

Chatham-Kent police report the tragedy took place about 2 p.m. Tuesday, when a 20-year-old Bothwell woman, eastbound on River Line, came to a stop at Kent Bridge Road to wait for a farm tractor that was southbound on Kent Bridge Road and turning onto River Line.

But as the tractor turned, the other vehicle pulled into the intersection and hit a northbound vehicle, which skidded sideways into the path of a southbound transport truck.

Two women, aged 62 and 63, of Kent Bridge, died in the crash.

Police are still piecing together what happened and ask any witnesses to come forward. Contact Const. Ron Tricker at or 519-436-6600, ext. 81784; or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


  1. This crash happened a year ago on August 9 2017,yet there have been no charges laid against the 20 yr old woman from Bothwell who caused the accident..It angers me that people who cause accidents like this one,are never charged…The 20 yr old got off scott free which I think was wrong.. Since this happened in 2017,wonder if the woman can still sleep at knowing she killed two people
