Dalkeith man dies in crash
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.
