An Acton woman was killed and three others were badly injured in a two-vehicle head-on collision on Highway 401 near Chatham early Sunday evening. Twenty-six-year-old Hara Kim, a passenger in the westbound Mazda Protégé, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of that vehicle, an unidentified 42-year-old woman, also from Acton, remains in stable but serious condition at University Hospital in London, Ont. Two adult male occupants of an eastbound Chevrolet Safari minivan were taken to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. A 45-year-old from Kitchener is in critical condition with his injuries, while a 35-year-old Waterloo man was listed in serious but stable condition Tuesday afternoon. Preliminary investigation has revealed that the Protégé crossed the median at about 6:40 p.m. Sunday and collided head-on with the Safari, closing the highway for several hours while the OPP investigated. Constable Aaron McPhail of Chatham-Kent OPP said initial reports suggest the roadway was dry and clear at the time of the accident. No charges have been laid and two Technical Traffic Collision Investigators have been assigned to the incident. McPhail noted it could take up to two weeks before investigators reveal their initial findings in the determination of a cause for the crash.
