A second person has died following a three-vehicle collision in South Glengarry Wednesday.
The driver of a vehicle involved in the crash, Jeffery Dobson, 20, of South Stormont Township succumbed to his injuries in hospital today (December 1). Kyle Quesnel, 20, of Cornwall, had earlier passed away from injuries suffered in the accident which occurred at 11:30 a.m. November 30 on County Road 2.
A police investigation has indicated that a 2010 Honda Civic, driven by Jeffery Dobson, was eastbound when he lost control and collided with a westbound 2015 Dodge van, driven by a 61-year-old woman from South Glengarry.
Kyle Quesnel was one of two passengers in the Honda. A 19-year-old Cornwall woman suffered life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the van (the lone occupant) was also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A third vehicle (pick-up & trailer) was involved but made minor contact after the fact but no injuries resulted.
When Gilles Carrière died in 1970, the death of the 15-year-old from Glen Roy was ruled to be a drowning. But his father and his brother never accepted that Gilles, a strong swimmer, could drown in four feet of water. The coroner admitted the investigation was flawed; to this day, details remain confidential; documents are heavily redacted. "There are too many questions," says Bernie Carrière.
