Police have laid charges in relation to a collision earlier this year in Oro-Medonte that killed a Tay Township woman.

Orillia OPP responded just before 5 a.m. April 7 to a two-vehicle, head-on collision on Highway 12 at Stage Coach Road.

The crash killed Tay Township's Irene Youngblut (née Ciesielski), 66.

On Wednesday, police arrested a 51-year-old man from Sudbury, who has been charged with impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death, and driving a motor vehicle with cannabis readily available.

The man was held in custody and was set to appear Thursday in Orillia court.
