Woman dies of injuries received in crash near Drayton

A 69-year-old woman who was taken to hospital following a two-vehicle crash in Wellington County has died of her injuries.

The crash occurred Friday evening on Wellington Road 8 near Wellington Road 12, just east of Drayton.

Wellington County OPP say Clara Showalter was attempting to turn into a private driveway when she hit an eastbound vehicle driven by a 19-year-old Mapleton Township man.

Showalter was taken to hospital with serious injuries, and died of those injuries Saturday night.

No charges have been laid.

It’s not clear if weather conditions played a role in the crash, but it was very foggy in the area at the time.
