The collision was investigated with the assistance of the OPP, Technical Traffic Collision Investigators. No charges have been laid at this time as the events of the collision are still under investigation.

Leeds Grenville Paramedics and the Brockville Fire Department, should be recognized for their efforts in yesterday’s events.
