A single-vehicle crash has claimed the lives of two young women from Tillsonburg.

Norfolk OPP say they were travelling along La Salette Road, east of Tillsonburg, just before 10 p.m. Saturday night.

The car left the road, went into a deep ditch and then hit a tree.

The driver, 19-year-old Meagan Lofthouse, and the lone passenger, 21-year-old Brittany Wardle, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The OPP traffic collision team had La Salette Road closed for several hours during the investigation.
