Ottawa Police have confirmed one of the victims of Sunday's three-vehicle crash in North Gower has died.

Four people were taken to hospital, two of them seniors in critical condition, after a collision involving three vehicles on Roger Stevens Drive and McCordick Road at around 3:00 p.m. Sunday.

An air ambulance and firefighters were called to the scene to extricate three of the four patients.

Ottawa Police say a 78-year-old woman, a passenger in one of the vehicles, died of her injuries in hospital. An 82-year-old man remains in hospital with serious injuries. Two other people, a 62-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man have minor injuries.

It's unclear at this time if any charges will be laid.
