Three young women dead after collision with truck

Family and friends are mourning the deaths of three young women, killed when a tractor-trailer struck the back of their car in eastern Ontario.

The Ontario Provincial Police say the crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. on Friday about four kilometres south of Warkworth, which is northeast of Cobourg.

Investigators say the women were travelling north on County Road 25, pulled onto the shoulder, then tried to make a U-turn when the northbound rig smashed into their vehicle.

The victims have been identified as Erin Reed, 19, Robyn Taylor, 20, and Kandas Derry, 20. All three died on the scene.
