Major two-vehicle crash just north of Kingston

It's believed two people are dead in a devastating two-vehicle collision in Kingston.

The wreckage of the car and transport truck is being removed this morning near the intersection of Battersea Road and Kingston Mills Road.

The vehicles collided around 6:15 p.m. Monday, but Kingston Police have still not released any information about the crash.

It's believed the victims are two teenage sisters.

They were in a car going west on Kingston Mills Road that was struck by a transport that was southbound on Battersea Road.

The force of the crash sent the car hurtling into a nearby cornfield where it came to rest upside down, about 15 metres from the road on the west side. The truck, separated into two pieces, ended up on the east side of the road.

The truck driver was apparently not injured.

Battersea Road remains closed but is expected to be reopened by noon.
