 Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigate fatal motor collision on Hiighway 69

SUDBURY, ON – On February 16, 2014 at approximately 3:31PM Sudbury Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision on Highway 69, south of Daoust Lake Road. 

Initial investigation revealed that a north bound Chrysler Sebring crossed the centre line into the south bound lane striking a Chevrolet Uplander then continued north bound in the south bound lane colliding head on with Jeep Commander.

Russell Galbraith (29yrs), driver of the north bound Chrysler Sebring succumbed to his injuries after being transported to hospital.

The driver and passenger of the Jeep Commander were transported to hospital and are in serious but stable condition.

The OPP had Highway 69 closed for approximately six hours while the on-scene investigation was completed with the assistance of an OPP collision reconstructionist. 

The highway has since been re-opened.

Why do we seem to have the most concentrated population of idiots in this's come out in the droves, showing yourselves and lack of tact and or empathy by your continuous self-serving responses. I'm embarrassed most days.
Dead End Kid 2/17/2014 3:23:37 PM Report

Then what do you call what you just did?

I guess you get to call a person an idiot because you think you're better than everyone else.

Give your head a shake.

Haha what boggles my mind is the people that read the story AND comments then get all pissy because they don`t like what was said by others .
Here`s a thought for those type of people the news story then move on. Take your self righteousness elsewhere

Condolences extended to the family and friends of all involved.

Crossing the centre line again must have been another mechanical issue or perhaps a quick sneezing or coughing fit. A split second can make all the difference .
Condolences to the families.
zzeke 2/17/2014 4:21:58 PM Report

You`re likely right kingpin !!
