Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says that RCMP were called to two-vehicle crash on Benvoulin Road near Byrns Road on Dec. 13 at 3:34 pm.

He states that police were told that the driver of a black Nissan Micra had been in the process of turning left across the three oncoming lanes of travel when it was struck by the driver of a white Ford Fusion.
