Four months after a London man was killed in a multi-vehicle collision on the 402, Middlesex County OPP have laid charges.
34-year-old Jonathan James Wright died after two tractor trailers and two vehicles collided in the eastbound lanes of the highway just after 3 p.m. June 27th, 2016.
A green Volvo tractor trailer struck a grey Ford car. Wright, from London, died at the scene. Five other people involved in the collision were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Pictures taken at the scene show one of the transport trucks engulfed in flames.
Now, four months later, provincial police have charged the driver of the green tractor trailer.
Police say 52-year-old James Brown from Oxford County has been charged with one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, and four counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle cause bodily harm, contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada.
OPP say Brown has been released by way of a Promise to Appear, and is scheduled to answer the charges in a London court on December 12th, 2016.
The fatal collision came less than 20 minutes after a separate crash was reported by police in the same area but on the westbound lanes of the 402. In that incident, police say a dump truck crashed in the ditch and spilled gravel and debris across both east and westbound lanes.
