OPP have identified the person killed in a multi-vehicle crash on May 20th at approximately 2:45pm on Highway 3 between Essex County Road 18 and Upcott Side Road in Kingsville.

A three wheeled motorcycle was travelling eastbound on Highway 3 when it veered into the westbound lane crashing head on into tractor trailer hauling gravel. The motorcycle was then redirected back into the eastbound lane where it was struck a second time by a black Dodge pickup truck that had been travelling behind the motorcycle.

The tractor trailer then travelled into the eastbound lane and struck a camper trailer that was being towed by a black Ford pickup truck causing minor damage. The tractor trailer then struck the driver side of a red Dodge pickup truck which was also towing a camper trailer and was subsequently demolished as a result of the impact. Both vehicles ended up in the eastbound ditch.

A Chevrolet pickup truck was driven into the ditch to avoid the collision and was not damaged.

The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene. He has been identified as Michael Dostal, age 66 of Brantford.

The driver of the red Dodge was taken to hospital with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries. Those injuries have been upgraded to non-life threatening.

The driver of the transport truck suffered non-life threatening injuries as well as the driver of the black Dodge pickup truck and the passenger of the red Dodge pickup truck.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
