A truck driver from Mississauga has been charged with careless driving in connection with a four-vehicle crash that killed a Windsor teen.
Nicole Vetor, 19, was killed in the crash on Highway 401 on Feb. 7, 2017.
The teenager was just beginning her career as a welder before she was killed, according to an agency that helped her find her first job.
"This was a very promising young lady," said Kyle Devine, who helped Vetor get her first welding job through his work placement agency. "She had incredible talent and she was just starting her life, just starting her career."
Provincial police studied the crash near Todd Lane to evaluate their emergency response on the new stretch of Highway, but Sgt. Dave Rektor said the OPP did not have any safety concerns about the stretch of road.
"Highways don't cause crashes, people cause crashes," he said at the time. "It's that people are not paying attention. They're still driving impaired, they're still driving aggressively and they're not wearing their seatbelts."
The 30-year-old transport driver will appear in a Windsor court on May 29.
