Man Killed in Crash
Grey County O.P.P. investigated a two-vehicle collision at an intersection east of Flesherton that occurred just before noon on March 3.
The crash occurred at approximately 11: 55 a.m. A white 1990 Honda Civic, southbound on Grey Road 2, entered the intersection and was struck broadside by a gray 2005 Mazda 3 which was travelling westbound on Grey Road 4. The traffic on Grey Road 2 at that location is controlled by stop signs and the sign for southbound traffic has a flashing red light that was operating at the time of the collision. The driver, and lone occupant of the southbound Honda, died at the scene. He was later identified as 57-year-old Frank WALKER of Brights Grove, near Sarnia.
The driver of the Mazda, 29 year-old Kimberley GRIBBLE from London, Ontario, was transported by ambulance to Grey Bruce Health Services-Markdale. Her injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
Grey Road 4 had been closed from the hamlet of Maxwell to the intersection of Grey Road 2 as Technical Traffic Investigators went over the scene. The Grey Highlands Volunteer Fire Department assisted police.
The investigation is continuing. Constable Dwayne FROOK is the investigating officer and anyone with information that might assist in the investigation is asked to contact Grey County O.P.P. at 1-888-310-1122.

Boating accident kills Mississauga principal
Called 'respected, strong mentor' to pupils, staff, colleagues
Boat swept through gate in dam on Loon Lake, police say
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter
The popular principal of a Mississauga elementary school has died after a weekend boating accident in cottage country.
Ontario Provincial Police said Deborah MacDONALD was paddling a 12-foot motorboat across Loon Lake, near Kearney, to meet her husband at a public boat launch to put the boat in storage for the winter.
But the 53-year-old woman was apparently swept down a spillway in a concrete dam on the lake and struck her head on the dam's edge.
"The motor wasn't working, so she was paddling it," an Ontario Provincial Police officer said yesterday.
"Her injuries were grave," he said. "It was a tragic mishap."
Staff and students at Mississauga's Thomas Street Middle School, where MacDONALD was principal, were mourning her death yesterday.
In a letter to parents, Jim GRIEVE, Peel's director of education, called MacDONALD "an incredibly caring educator who was very involved with the students at the school and a recognized leader in education with 30 years of experience in the Peel board.
"She will be greatly missed."
Flags at Peel schools were at half-mast in her honour. Crisis counsellors were also at Thomas Street Middle School to help staff and students cope with MacDONALD's death.
MacDONALD had also been principal at Greenbriar Senior Public School in Brampton.
"She was a totally committed and dedicated professional," said Judith NYMAN, Peel's associate education director.
"At the heart of anything she's ever done… the best interests of students were always at the forefront.
"She has been a strong mentor, not only for students and staff, but also with colleagues, a highly respected person that people could turn to for assistance, advice and counsel," Nyman said.
Ken MacDONALD said he found his wife slumped in the boat when he drove around the lake to meet her on Saturday.
Police told him she likely suffered severe head injuries when she went through an adjustable sluice gate in the dam, he said.
He said he ran up a hill to get neighbours to call police and paramedics, then returned to the scene to give his wife aid until they arrived.
"I certainly tried," he said.
"I did everything I possibly could."
MacDONALD was taken to the Huntsville and District Memorial Hospital and then airlifted to Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto, where she died Sunday.
"She has a wonderful legacy, from her beautiful children to a vast array of people from all walks of life," Ken said. "She enjoyed life to the fullest and was skilled at bringing people together."
Married for 26 years to Ken, Deborah MacDONALD also leaves daughter Becky, who is following her footsteps at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education in Toronto, son Robert at Brock University and daughter Katie at Niagara College.
A service to celebrate her life will be held at the Turner and Porter Funeral Home, 2180 Hurontario St. in Mississauga at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
