ALLISTON - An 83-year-old Murray Harbour area woman died in hospital after being involved in a two-vehicle collision near here Sunday afternoon.
While police initially believed no one had suffered life-threatening injuries in the collision, a spokesperson said one of the drivers later died at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown.
Kings District RCMP, Murray River Fire Department and Island EMS all responded to the collision at the intersection of Route #4 and Peters Road Route #324 near Murray River at approximately 2:10 p.m.
Police are continuing to investigate the collision, which saw a southbound vehicle on Route #4 struck on the passenger side by a vehicle heading east on Route #324.
Officers had closed the intersection shortly before 2:30 p.m., which was re-opened about an hour later at 3:30 p.m.
According to eye-witnesses, the eastbound vehicle, which was being driven by the woman, failed to stop at the stop sign, said police.
The woman was alone in her vehicle at the time of the collision and the jaws of life were used to remove her from the vehicle.
