A 22-year-old woman died Sunday evening after the car she was riding in collided with a transport truck on Highway 17 in Petawawa, Ont.

Ontario Provincial Police said the collision happened at 8 p.m. just east of Paquette Road.

An eastbound car collided with a westbound transport truck and was then struck from behind by a second eastbound car, according to the OPP's preliminary investigation.

Amanda Kelsall, 22, of Shanty Bay, Ont., the passenger of the first eastbound car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the car was taken to hospital with injuries.

The driver of the transport and the driver of the second car were not injured.

Highway 17 has since reopened to traffic.
