(NORTH PERTH, ON) - On August 10, 2020, at approximately 6:00 p.m. The Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Perth Road 140 and Perth Line 91 in the Municipality of North Perth. It was reported that a tractor trailer and a Sport Utility Vehicle (S.U.V.) had collided at the intersection, and that three occupants in the S.U.V. were seriously injured.

Wellington County OPP, Wellington County Emergency Medical Service, Perth County Paramedic Services and Mapleton Fire also responded to the collision. A passenger in the S.U.V., Girga PERSAUD, 55, of Caledon, was pronounced dead at scene, and the other two occupants of the S.U.V. were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer did not require medical treatment.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the tractor trailer, which was hauling fuel, had been travelling westbound when it struck the S.U.V., which had been travelling northbound. The intersection is controlled by a stop sign in the north and south directions. Investigators from the West Region OPP Traffic Incident Management and Enforcement (TIME) Team assisted with the collision investigation.

On August 26 2020, the Perth County OPP charged the driver of the S.U.V., a 53-year-old resident of Caledon, with:

- Careless Driving Causing Death

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Stratford at a later date to answer to the charge.
