London police say a woman has died following an early morning collision on Oxford Street West.

Officers were called to the roadway around 5:15 a.m. near Sanatorium Road, for a collision between a Dodge pickup truck and a Volkswagen sedan.

Emergency crews had to extricate the female driver of the sedan– she was transported to hospital in critical condition - but has since succumbed to her injuries.

The woman was a former student at Mother Teresa secondary school and was attending Dalhousie University in Halifax.

The male driver of the pickup was transported to hospital with minor injuries.

There were no passengers in either of the vehicles.

Oxford Street was closed for several hours from Sanatorium Road to Kains Road but has since reopened.

The identity of the woman won’t be released until next of kin is notified.

An investigation into the cause of the collision continues.
