Three St. Clair Students Die in Crash in Lambton County


Three international students from India, who are studying St. Clair College have died following a crash in Lambton County.

The OPP say the single vehicle collision happened last Friday (1:30am) in Oil Springs on Oil Heritage Rd. between Aberfeldy and Gum Bed Line.

Police say three passengers were pronounced dead at the scene and the driver was taken to hospital as a precaution.

According to police, the three victims were not wearing seatbelts.

College spokesperson John Fairley says the college was notified Friday morning about the crash.

"We've been spending the last few days dealing with students, answering questions," says Fairley.  "We've had counselling on site at the college for our students and our staff and trying to reach our students when you hear the news like this, reach them where they're at."     

Fairley says it's been a difficult time at the college.

"We don't have a lot of details of knowing them personally or what they were involved in at this stage, the level I'm at but obviously where they were known to many at the college."    

The victims have been identified as Harpreet Kour, Gurvinder Singh and Tanveer Singh.

All were 19-years-old.

Lambton OPP continue to investigate.

Anyone with information is asked to call the OPP or Crime Stoppers.
