Uxbridge motorist facing slew of charges following weekend collision

An Uxbridge resident is facing a slew of charges after allegedly leaving the scene of a collision that sent six people to hospital over the weekend.

Officers were called to the intersection of Lake Ridge Road and Goodwood Road around 9:15 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 8) night following a four-vehicle collision.

“A white Ford F150 pickup truck was travelling eastbound on Goodwood Road at a high rate of speed when it rear-ended a white Ford Escape, forcing the Escape into the intersection where it collided with two additional vehicles,” reads a media release from the DRPS.

“The white Ford F150 left the roadway following the collision where it burst into flames. The occupants of the Ford F150 were able to exit the vehicle; however, they fled the scene on foot before police arrived.”

Six people involved in the collision were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Four adults and a 14-year-old were taken to a local hospital, while a two-year-old was transported to a Toronto-area hospital.

Police say the Ford F150 was reported as stolen from Lindsay earlier in the day.

According to the DRPS, the driver fled the area and broke into a residence that was under construction.

“Officers were able to locate her in Uxbridge and place her under arrest yesterday,” reads a media release.

Jennifer Hallett, 42, of Wagg Road in Uxbridge has been charged with two counts of fail to remain; failure to stop after accident – bodily harm; four counts of dangerous operation of a conveyance cause bodily harm; possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000; theft of a motor vehicle; mischief under $5,000; break and enter; transportation fraud; three counts of fail to comply with undertaking; fail to comply with probation order.

She was held for a bail hearing.
