Woman Rescued after Boat Launch Collision Dies in Hospital

A woman, 57, has died after driving her car off a boat launch in Rideau Lakes Township.

OPP say they continue to investigate, but confirm alcohol was a factor.

On Friday, just before midnight, officers arrived to find her vehicle completely submerged in Upper Rideau Lake, just outside of Westport.

An OPP Emergency Response Team member and a volunteer firefighter dove into the water and rescued the woman from her vehicle to safety.

The woman was transported to Kingston General Hospital in critical condition but succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday.

She has been identified as Wendy Holmes of Rideau Lakes Township.
