Indian Point--A 21-year old woman has been charged with careless driving in connection with a tragic one-vehicle accident, October 1, which took the lives of three area residents.
Dead are: Harvey Crawford, 54, of Gordon Township; William Burns Middaugh, 38, of Gore Bay; and Barry Bruce Campbell, 21, of Gordon Township.
The victims were all passengers in the cab of a 1979 GMC truck believed to have been driven at the time of the accident by darlene Townsend of Meldrum Bay. A fifth pasenger in the truck's cab, ronald Paul Middaugh, 21, of Gordon Township, and Ms. Townsend did not receive serious injury.
According to Ontario Provincial Police in Gore Bay, they believe the truck was being driven by Ms. Townsend when it struck one side of the north end of Indian Point Bridge, about midnight last Wednesday. It then careened to the other side and back again, plunging through guard rails to end upside down in three feet of water in Wolsey Lake.
Shortly afterward, a Gore Bay ambulance on the way to another location passed by and the attendants saw a light in the water. They stopped and freed Ms. Townsend who was stuck to part of the wreck. Next they pried open a door to free Ronald Middaugh whose uncle William Middaugh was among the victims, OPP Constable Don Watson said.
The survivors were taken to the Manitoulin Health Centre in Little Current for examination and released.
Ms. Townsend has been charged with careless driving, Constable Watson said.
