Three Students From Punjab Die In Car Crash In Canada
Three students from Punjab, who were pursuing higher studies at a college in Canada, were killed when their car crashed in Ontario.
The accident took place on Oil Heritage Road in Ontario late on Friday night.
While the driver was seriously injured, the three students — Tanvir Singh, Gurvinder and Harpreet Kaur — were killed, family of one of them who died told reporters in Jalandhar.
The three students were said to be around 20 years of age and were from Jalandhar and Gurdaspur districts.
Tanvir Singh’s father Bhupinder Singh told reporters that his son went to Canada for higher studies earlier this year.
Harpreet Kaur and Gurvinder had gone to Canada in April.
SARNIA – The families of the three victims killed early Friday morning after a violent single-vehicle crash on a lonely rural road south of Petrolia might take some time to notify, local police say.
Since none of the deceased are from the Lambton County area, notifying the next of kin will be “complicated,” OPP West Region spokesperson Derek Rogers said.
The fatal crash happened at about 1:30 a.m. between Gum Bed Line and Aberfeldy Line on a stretch of road that sharply curves east before continuing due south toward Chatham-Kent.
The battered car came to rest in a grassy field beside Oil Heritage Road. Two deep ruts could be seen nearly parallel to the roadway.
Three people in their 20s were killed in the crash. The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital “as a precaution.”
The Lambton OPP later reopened this stretch of Oil Heritage Road in the early afternoon after hours investigating the crumpled remains of the lone vehicle involved in the collision.
Names had not been released as of Friday evening because next of kin had not been notified.
The investigation is ongoing.
Any witnesses of the crash are encouraged to call the Lambton OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
This wasn’t the first fatal crash along this busy stretch of Lambton County road this year. A 21-year-old pedestrian was killed in an August collision after she was struck by a transport truck on Oil Heritage Road, just north of Edys Mill Line. In May, a 42-year-old Michigan man was killed in a fiery single-vehicle crash on Oil Heritage
