Head On Crash Kills One

FERGUS – A 38 year old woman from Fergus has died after a head on crash between a dump truck and a Mazda 3 on County Road 21 near the 4th line.
Police say the driver of the Mazda Amy Stiles was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the dump truck was also taken to the hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries. The crash happened on Thursday afternoon near Elora.
The investigation into the crash revealed that for unknown reasons the Mazda Sedan crossed over the centre line into the path of the Dump Truck. A mechanical inspection of the Dump Truck was conducted and found no defects. Investigators have also ruled out cell phone usage for either driver as being a factor in this collision.
Stiles was a mother of three and registered nurse and a college teacher. A Go Fund Me Account has been set up for her grieving husband and the rest of the family. You can read more about that online https://www.gofundme.com/amystiles.
