The OPP have laid careless driving charges.

Members of the OPP Highway Safety Division have charged a 50-year-old Winnipeg man following a traffic complaint in the area. On December 3, while at the scene of a fatal motor vehicle collision, which the semi was not involved in, officers received a report of a commercial tractor trailer unit being operated in an unsafe manner.

It was reported that the truck was travelling without headlights or running lights. Police located the vehicle and deemed it to be unsafe to travel. The driver was subsequently charged with careless driving and operating an unsafe combination of vehicles – commercial motor vehicle charges.

The Trans-Canada was closed near Lindsay Road starting at 3:30 p.m. and one lane was opened about four hours later. Police, fire and ambulance attended, and it was determined that an eastbound sports utility vehicle collided with a westbound tractor trailer unit in the westbound lane.

The female driver of the SUV, 73-year-old Kenora resident Mary Kozak, was pronounced dead at the scene.
