Fatal collision claims Bolton man’s life – 2 year old in car unharmed

December 31, 2013   ·   0 Comments

The weather is considered a contributing factor in a fatal collision on Saturday evening. Just after 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 21, 2013, South Simcoe Police, along with paramedics and King Fire & Emergency Services, responded to a two vehicle collision on Highway 27, about 3 kilometers north of Schomberg. A farm tractor pulling two fully loaded hay wagons lost control on the icy road and jack-knifed across the highway. A southbound Volkwagen Jetta stationwagon swerved to the right, but was unable to avoid the wagons, crashing into the rear of the first. A 77 year old grandfather from Bolton was killed instantly. His two year old granddaughter, who was in a child safety seat, was uninjured. Roads at the time of the crash were icy, and the continuing storm hampered investigators, who kept the road closed until the wee hours of Sunday morning. Witnesses to the collision are asked to call the South Simcoe Police at 905-775-3311 or 705-436-2141.
