OTTAWA ACCIDENT LAWYER- On January 3, 2012 two people, including an Ottawa man, were killed in a head-on crash involving a tractor trailer on Highway 17. The accident happened near Alfred, Ontario early in the morning.
It is reported that a pickup truck and a transport truck collided on the County Road 15 and Peladeau Road at about 3:15 a.m. Unfortunately both drivers died at the scene. Early reports suggest that neither driver was wearing a seatbelt, although that has not been proven.
The driver of the pickup truck has been identified as 31-year-old Ghislian Landry of Orleans. The driver of the tractor trailer is 50-year-old Gordon Wray of Oshawa. Our condolences to their families.
The road was re-opened Tuesday afternoon after about 12 hours. Police said they are trying to determine the cause of the car accident.
