THUN­DER BAY, Ont. — Pro­vin­cial po­lice say they’ve laid charges fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a col­li­sion last year that left one per­son dead and two oth­ers in­jured.

They say the driver of an SUV — a 46-year-old Thun­der Bay, Ont., man — was charged Mon­day with dan­ger­ous op­er­a­tion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle caus­ing death in re­la­tion to the Dec. 14 crash.

Po­lice al­lege the driver of a north­bound SUV crossed the cen­tre line of High­way 11/17 in Thun­der Bay and col­lided with a south­bound truck. The col­li­sion also in­volved a south­bound car.

The driver of the truck — 50-year-old Gary Maki of Thun­der Bay — was ejected from the ve­hi­cle and died of his in­juries. The driver of the SUV had to be ex­tri­cated from the ve­hi­cle us­ing the jaws of life and suf­fered se­ri­ous but non-life threat­en­ing in­juries. The fe­male driver of the car re­ceived mi­nor in­juries.
