Buggy driver, 22, killed in Bruce County crash
Provincial police say they began investigating last month after hearing from other law enforcement agencies that drugs were being imported in vehicles shipped to Canada by rail.
South Bruce OPP say a 22-year-old man has died after the horse-drawn wagon he was driving was struck from behind by a car on Tuesday evening.
The two-vehicle collision happened around 9 p.m. on Bruce Road 7 between Concession 2 and Concession 4 in Huron-Kinloss.
The buggy, which was carrying a load of lumber, was northbound when it was hit by a Ford Taurus travelling in the same direction.
The wagon’s driver, identified as Leroy Brubacher of Huron-Kinloss, was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the car, a 35-year-old Ripley man, was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
There were no passengers in either vehicle.
An investigation into the collision continues, but Bruce Road 7 was reopened around 11 a.m.
