In a freak incident, a young Canadian woman was killed by her laptop during an accident in the Indian-dominated city of Surrey near here, investigation reports said on Thursday.

According to police, investigation has established that 25-year-old Heather Storey was killed when she was hit by her laptop while driving to work last month.

The unsecured laptop hit the woman's head from behind when she had to brake hard to stop her vehicle suddenly.

Police said the impact of sudden braking sent the laptop flying and hit her in the head.

The force of the impact was so severe that it shattered the woman's head, the laptop screen and bent its frame.

Investigators said the woman would have survived had she secured the laptop and warned people not to leave their belongings unsecured in the back of their vehicles.
