MIDDLESEX CENTRE, ONT. -- Charges have been laid in a fatal head-on crash west of Harriston last summer that killed a 24-year-old man.

OPP responded to a crash involving two pickups on Harriston Road 87 in the early morning hours of Aug. 19.

Brandon Cox of Clifford was killed in the collision. The other driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

OPP investigators have now determined a pickup truck crossed over the centre line into the path of Cox's truck.

As a result, a 33-year-old Howick man has been charged with:

  • careless driving causing death
  • operate a motor vehicle without insurance
  • driver - fail to properly wear seat belt

A court date in Goderich has been scheduled for Jan. 5, 2021.
