KITCHENER -- One person is dead after a head-on crash on Highway 7/8 on Wednesday morning, Ontario Provincial Police confirm.
Officials say a truck heading westbound near Nafziger Road crossed over the centre line, striking a car headed in the opposite direction.
The driver of the car, a 63-year-old woman from New Hamburg, was killed in the crash.
Police have not released her name.
The man driving the pickup truck, which was seen in a ditch with serious damage to its front end, was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
It's not yet clear what caused the crash.
"We're looking at all situations," says Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. "We don't have any indications of alcohol or drugs at this time. So not sure if there was distraction or fatigue or any other issues that may have contributed to this."
Police say they haven't laid any charges.
