East Quogue woman killed, her parents seriously injured, in Canada car crash

The 37-year-old woman from East Quogue killed in a single-car rollover crash on a Canadian highway Wednesday was traveling with her parents, who remain hospitalized with serious injuries, a spokeswoman for the Ontario Provincial Police said Friday.

Provincial Constable C.A. Lindsey said the 70-year-old driver was the victim's father and that her 70-year-old mother also was in the 2012 Honda CRV when it overturned on Highway 401 north of Kingston, Ontario, at about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said the vehicle rolled over several times, before coming to rest on its roof.

The victim's mother and father, also from East Quogue, both were seriously injured and remain hospitalized. The nature of their injuries were not disclosed.

Lindsey said it was departmental policy not to identify the victims.

Police said the Honda was headed east on Highway 401 when the driver lost control and hit the median at the Blue Church Road overpass, causing the vehicle to roll over.

The accident scene was in Augusta Township, along a stretch of road that parallels the St. Lawrence River, north of the Thousand Islands region of upstate New York.
