Ontario Provincial Police say a 29-year-old Ottawa woman is dead after an SUV crashed into a stopped transport truck on Highway 17 near Pembroke, Ont.

In a social media post Sunday morning, OPP said the collision happened around 8 p.m. on Saturday near Forest Lea Road.

The victim was a passenger in the SUV. Police said she was pronounced dead at the scene, while two others in the vehicle — a 34-year-old man and a young girl — were taken to hospital to be checked out.

They were not injured, police said. The driver of the transport truck, a 22-year-old man, was also unhurt.

In a media release sent out Sunday afternoon, the OPP said the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario "is also engaged, and a postmortem examination will be conducted as part of the investigation."
