A 23-year-old Mississauga woman has been charged after a crash in Etobicoke that left a passenger in her car dead.

The woman drove into the back of a parked school bus at Lake Shore Boulevard and 13th Street, near Kipling Avenue, around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

A 25-year-old man, who was a passenger in the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Add manslaughter to the charges, her negligence killed a young man. NEVER be afraid to refuse to get in a car with a “friend”.
