Cummer Avenue crash leaves woman dead, man in hospital

A woman in her 20s is dead and a man is in hospital after an overnight crash on Cummer Avenue east of Bayview Avenue. 

At 1:44 a.m., paramedics responded to a call of a car crashed into a bridge abutment on Cummer just east of Snowcrest Avenue.

Police say the woman was driving the car when it struck the edge of a bridge. Police say it appears she was going too fast on a curve.

The jaws of life were used two remove both people from the vehicle. The male passenger, also in his 20s, is believed to be in serious condition. 

Cummer Avenue is closed between Snowcrest Avenue and Craigmont Drive while police investigate.
