Canton – Fatal Tree Crash

A motorist was killed when his vehicle crashed into a tree in Canton last Sunday.

At around 5:40 p.m., emergency crews were dispatched to 675 Cherry Brook Road after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, a pickup truck with one occupant (driver) veered off the roadway and crashed into a tree. The driver sustained critical injuries in the crash and was declared dead at the scene. Road crews immediately blocked off the roadway to allow investigators to collect evidence. The area has since been cleared. Officials have yet to identify the victim pending notification of next of kin. Updates will be provided when appropriate.

Vehicles crashing into various roadside structures typically result in injuries and can be caused by vehicle defects/failures, among other possibilities. Authorities are expected to study all angles in determining accountability. Obviously, this is important so that responsible parties can be brought to justice. Motorists involved in similar situations should also be aware of their own options that they can discuss with legal experts. These avenues can help them cope and find closure.
