Just days after Jack Moon lost his home in a fire, the Gananoque-area man was killed in a multi-vehicle pileup on Highway 401 near Brockville.

OPP confirmed that 33-year-old Moon was the only fatality in the highway crash, which occurred during a snow squall.

A 28-year-old from Brampton and a 53-year-old from Pickering have been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, dangerous operation causing bodily harm and criminal negligence causing bodily harm, but not in connection to Moon’s fatality.
