An 18 year old Thames Centre man has been charged after what OPP are calling careless driving just north of St. Thomas.

The accident happened last night shortly after 7 pm when officers responded to the scene on Highbury between Webber Bourne and Carr Road.

At the time of the collision the a Jeep Patriot driven by the 18 year old crossed over the centre line while travelling around a curve and collided head on with a Honda CRV. It then spun and struck a Ford F150 Truck which had been following the CRV. 

The three vehicles involved all ended up in two ditches along the road. The Jeep and CRV sustained extenssive damage. So much so the 53 year old woman driving the CRV had to be extracted from her vehicle.

She was transported along with the driver of the Jeep to London Health Sciences Centre and treated for minor injuries.

The driver of the Ford Truck was not injured.

Highbury Avenue was closed for approximately 2 hours while EMS crews were on scene.

As a result of the investigation police have charged Jeremy Nopper age 18 of Thames Centre with Careless Driving under the Highway Traffic Act.
