An August crash at the intersection of Wellington Street East and Kohler Street that killed one person has resulted in no charges.

The crash, which happened on Aug. 30, involved two vehicles, a silver Nissan SUV driven by a 90-year-old and an silver Dodge pickup driven by a 28-year-old.

The driver of the SUV was taken to hospital where they later died as a result of their injuries.
