The Glengarry News - - Front Page - BY SCOTT CARMICHAEL News Staff

A 59-year-old Dalkeith man was killed last Tues­day af­ter­noon when the mo­tor­cy­cle he was driv­ing was struck by a pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cle north of Maxville.

An­drew Chisholm died af­ter be­ing hit by a south­bound ve­hi­cle whose driver was at­tempt­ing to make a turn at the in­ter­sec­tion of County Road 20 (High­land Road) and County Road 24 just af­ter 5 p.m.

Mr. Chisholm, who was trav­el­ling north­bound at the time, was pro­nounced dead at the scene. The driver of the ve­hi­cle was not in­jured. A sec­tion of both roads was closed to traf­fic for sev­eral hours fol­low­ing the col­li­sion as mem­bers of the Stor­mont, Dun­das and Glen­garry OPP, with the as­sis­tance of the OPP Tech­ni­cal Traf­fic Col­li­sion In­ves­ti­ga­tor unit, looked for clues as to the cause of the crash.

Mar­jorie De­caire, ad­min­is­tra­tor at Cedar Ridge De­signs and Cus­tom Cab­i­netry in Maxville where Mr. Chisholm worked, said he was well-liked by own­er­ship, staff and his fel­low em­ploy­ees.

“We knew An­drew very well,” Mrs. De­caire, speak­ing on be­half of the com­pany’s pres­i­dent and CEO, Colin Un­ruh, told The News.

“He was ver­sa­tile and a good-na­tured worker. We’ll miss him very much.”

The crash was still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion as of press time.
