Shortly before 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 11, 2012, police were sent to a single motor vehicle collision on Wellington Road at Glanworth Drive. A motor vehicle was found to have left the roadway striking a tree.
Three of the four occupants of the vehicle were extricated and taken to hospital, with the forth, a 38-year-old male occupant, being pronounced dead on scene. A second occupant, a 15- month old female, was transported to hospital and shortly after was pronounced dead.
