Second victim dies after head-on crash

GLEN WALTER — A second victim involved in a head-on crash on County Road 2, east of Cornwall, has died of his injuries.

Jeff Dobson, 20, of South Stormont was the driver of a 2010 Honda Civic which lost control on the highway near Purcell Road late Wednesday morning and collided with a minivan.

He died of his injuries in hospital today.

A passenger initially killed in the three vehicle wreck has been identified by SD&G O.P.P. as Kyle Quesnel, 20, of Cornwall.

A third person in the car – a 19-year-old woman from Cornwall – is fighting for her life in hospital.

The driver of the minivan was treated for minor injuries and the driver of a pickup truck, caught up in the head-on, was not injured.

The cause of the crash is under investigation though investigators say speed and lack of seat belt use are being considered as factors in the crash.

A section of the road was closed for most of the day Wednesday and reopened around 11 p.m.
