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.

The woman was seriously hurt in the crash but her injuries are not life-threatening.

She was due in court on Thursday.

Police are asking local residents, businesses and drivers, who may have security or dash-cam footage of the incident, to call them.

@rds65: RIP, young man. One life cut short, the other ruined after a poor decision of the young female driver.

Time to make the rule for driving for all drivers at zero alcohol.
as in, you take a sip, you cannot drive for 24 hours. similar to what pilots are required – and for good reason.
It is sad that there are now more ruined lives over an idiotic move. She deserves whats coming (likely a few years in prison)
