Man charged in fatal crash near Cargill

One man is dead, and another man is facing charges following a two-vehicle crash near Cargill late Sunday morning.

The South-Bruce OPP received a report of the crash at the intersection of Bruce County Road 3 and Cargill Road in Brant Twp. at 10:45 a.m. Sunday. Officers arrived on the scene to find a beige GMC Sierra 2500 pick-up truck pulling a Prowler 5th wheel trailer and a black Nissan Rogue involved in a crash. They have since determined that the Sierra was travelling east on the Cargill Road when it pulled into the path of the Nissan, which was travelling north on Bruce County Road 3.
