Ingersoll man dies from injuries
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.
