Deadly head-on crash on County Road 43

AVONMORE – A driver from Gatineau, Que. has died after a head-on crash on County Road 43 late Tuesday night.

Provincial police say a westbound passenger vehicle crossed the center line and collided with another vehicle around 10 p.m.

The 69-year-old Gatineau, Que. driver of the westbound vehicle, and only one in the vehicle, died at the scene.

The driver and lone occupant of the eastbound vehicle, a 34-year-old Cornwall woman, was taken to hospital by paramedics with serious non-life threatening injuries, police said.

A section of County Road 43 between MacMillan Road and County Road 14 was closed to traffic last night but has since reopened.

No names have been released until relatives are notified.
