A teen-aged girl is dead and an under-age  male driver is facing charges after a terrible crash early Tuesday morning on Highway 10, at the entrance to Teen Ranch.

Caledon OPP reports officers were called out at 4:13 a.m., along with Caledon Fire and Emergency Services and Peel EMS.

Preliminary investigation by police revealed the vehicle – a stolen SUV – was travelling northbound on Highway 10, and crossed over into the southbound lanes and struck a stationary object in the west ditch area.

The driver was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. His passenger was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision. Identities of both those involved are not being released, with police citing the fact they’re both young people. Published media reports, however, give the girl’s age as 13 and state the boy is 14, although police are only saying they were younger than 16.

The young man has been charged with failing to comply with an undertaking, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, criminal negligence causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

Highway 10 was closed for about seven hours between Charleston Sideroad and McCannell Avenue while members of the OPP Technical Collision Investigation crew carried out their investigation.

Police are asking anyone with information about this crash to contact them at 905-584-2241 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
