Funeral services were held in Cambridge Saturday for a Kincardine man killed in a single-vehicle collision last Tuesday.

 

According to OPP Const. Nigel Heels, 20-year-old Carl Anderson was found in his vehicle on Highway 21 just north of Amberley shortly after 5:30 a.m. July 19, after a passing motorist spotted his vehicle in a ditch and contacted police.

 

According to an obituary printed in the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, Anderson was the son of David and Peggy Anderson of Kincardine and has two sisters, living in southwestern Ontario.

 

Heels said Anderson was the only person in the vehicle. According to police, he had been heading home to Kincardine, after visiting his girlfriend in Cambridge. Police believe the vehicle rolled over and struck a tree. Heels said Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

Highway 21 between Concession 2 and Concession 4 in Huron Township was closed for six hours after police and emergency services arrived on scene. The OPP technical traffic collision investigation team, the Ripley fire department, Ontario coroner and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation assisted at the scene.

 

The OPP is continuing to investigate the crash and requests that anyone with information call 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

 

Anderson’s obituary stated that donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in his memory would be appreciated by his family.
