Six weeks after deadly New Year's Day crash OPP still have not released any information

It's been almost a month since Osagie children laid to rest, OPP say they have no information to release

The Ontario Provincial Police told it has no new information to release regarding its investigation into the Jan. 1 crash that killed three children from Chelmsford.

The single-vehicle crash on Highway 17 on New Year's Day claimed the lives of the three Osagie children: six-year-old Britney, 11-year-old Destiny and 10-year-old Flourish. 

Const. Michelle Coulombe told on Jan. 8 she expected details of the crash to be released within days.

It's now been six weeks since the crash, and police have still not released the results of their investigation into the cause of the crash, and no word if charges will be laid as a result.

A 10-year-old boy also sustained life-threatening injuries in the crash.

The Osagies' 45-year-old mother, who was driving the car, was not injured. Another 45-year-old woman, the mother of the injured 10-year-old boy, received minor injuries in the crash. 

At the time, the OPP said investigations of this complexity take time to complete. 

The Osagie children were laid to rest Jan. 18. More than 200 people attended the funeral at Glad Tidings Church.
