The driver of the Malibu, 83-year-old Cornelia Noordink from London was rushed to the Wingham and District hospital, where she was pronounced dead.   Her husband, 81 year old Evert Noordink, was airlifted to hospital in London with seirous injuries.

One passenger in the pickup was treated for minor injuries.  The other three occupants were not hurt.
A section of London Road between Wingham and Teeswater was closed for several hours for the police investigation.
