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.
