Inger­soll man dies from in­juries

Simcoe Reformer - - NEWS -

An Inger­soll man has died from in­juries sus­tained in a five-ve­hi­cle crash on High­way 24 north­west of Water­ford two weeks ago.

Kevin Coutts, 40, died in hos­pi­tal on Tues­day.

Coutts was one of four pas­sen­gers in a truck car­ry­ing con­struc­tion em­ploy­ees to a job site in Sim­coe.

Nor­folk OPP say the col­li­sion oc­curred when a pickup truck was at­tempt­ing to turn from High­way 24 onto Nor­folk County Road 19 East. The truck was rear-ended by an­other ve­hi­cle.

About 10 peo­ple were taken to lo­cal hos­pi­tal for treat­ment of their in­juries. Coutts was later air­lifted to a Hamil­ton hos­pi­tal for fur­ther treat­ment.

Coutts’ sis­ter, Dar­lene Wood­ley, set up a Go Fund Me page on Oct. 28 to as­sist Coutts’ wife Amanda and their two chil­dren Ma­son, 8, and Ariel, 4.

On Tues­day, Wood­ley posted the fol­low­ing mes­sage: “Tonight at 6:28 we said good­bye to my baby brother. We love you Kevin Coutts. Give (an) ex­tra hug to dad for us.”

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing and charges are pend­ing, said po­lice.
