Norfolk OPP say the woman was driving south on Orange Hall Road at about 11:30 p.m. when her vehicle left the road, entered the ditch and struck a tree.
“Family have been notified and our thoughts and prayers are going out to them,” said OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk. “I have a daughter myself and this is every parent’s worst nightmare, having police knock on their door or give them a phone call with regards to a motor vehicle collision involving a loved one.”
The driver was transported to a local hospital before being airlifted to a London hospital for further treatment.
Orange Hall Road was closed between Plowman’s Line and Colonel Talbot Road for the investigation.
An 18-year-old woman is in hospital with life-threatening injuries following a single vehicle crash near Tillsonburg.
A grey coloured sedan was heading southbound when it left the roadway entering the ditch and crashing into a tree.
Western University and the union representing its faculty have reached a tentative agreement just as a strike deadline expired.
