Lambton OPP say a second car was involved in the accident that killed three Windsor college students south of Oil Springs.

Another man has been charged.

In October, the OPP, Dawn-Euphemia and Oil Springs fire departments and Lambton EMS were called to the curves on Oil Heritage Line at Aberfeldy Line. A sedan had veered off the highway in the curve and flipped several times into a field on the west side of the road.

Police photographs posted on social media show the car was heading south and missed the bend in the road, heading into a triangular field between Oil Heritage, Aberfeldy and a short side road leading to Aberfeldy.
The three victims were all 19 and from the Indian state of Punjab. They were studying business in Windsor.

Jovanpreet Singh, 22, was charged with three counts of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death, dangerous operation causing bodily harm, three counts of criminal negligence causing death, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and obstructing a police officer shortly after the accident. He made a brief court appearance in Sarnia March 2, where the court learned he had changed lawyers.

OPP now say another car was involved in “the events leading up to the crash.”

Sehajpreet SINGH, 20, of India, was arrested and charged with Dangerous Operation of a vehicle. He was in court March 5 and returns April 20.
