Posted by wlpo on April 22, 2011

The investigation continues into a crash that killed a mother and daughter from Ottawa.

Police say 69 year old Lorraine McNeil was heading east on the Morris Blacktop when she stopped at the stop sign at the North 30th Road intersection before pulling out into the path of a truck heading south on the blacktop.

McNeil and her daughter, 45 year old Kathleen Wilcox, were pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver of the truck was taken to Ottawa Regional Hospital for treatment.

This stretch of the Morris Blacktop was closed for over six hours as investigators reconstructed the crash.
