Personal Injury Ottawa Lawyers: David Hollingsworth–My thoughts go out to the people involved in this tragic accident. To the Simpson family, I am so sorry for your loss. Kyle Simpson sounded like a great kid.
An Ottawa-area teen was killed Saturday in a car accident that also left two others in hospitals. I also wish a speedy and healthy recovery to both drivers . Amelia McInnes, Kyle’s girlfriend remains in the hospital with a serious head injury. My thoughts are with her friends and family. Sadly, 19 year old Kyle Simpson of Ashton, sadly died at the scene of the crash on South Lavant Road, just west of Highway 511 in the Township of Lanark Highlands. OPP said a westbound pick-up truck collided with an eastbound car on the two-lane road at 3:05 p.m. Simpson, a passenger in the car, suffered extensive injury and died before paramedics could transport him to hospital.The drivers of the pick-up truck and car were taken to the Perth Hospital, but their names have not yet been released by police. Friends and former classmates yesterday remembered Simpson, a graduate of South Carleton High School, as a happy and hardworking young man. Simpson worked full-time at TDL, a truck and trailer repair shop in Carp. He was hoping to become a fully license truck mechanic.
Simpson enjoyed a wide circle of friends, some of whom posted remembrances on his Facebook page Saturday. Simpson, who grew up on a farm in Ashton, about 40 kilometres west of downtown Ottawa, was an avid snowmobiler and dirt biker, who loved moving vehicles of all kinds. “He was a happy-go-lucky type guy, I guess,” said Brian Verhey, of North Gower, whose son, Brett, was a close friend of Simpson’s.
A trust fund has been established to helpAmelia McInnes’ family.
