SIX NATIONS — A crash at the intersection of Highway #6 and Fifth Line Road took the lives of two men and severely injured a third just outside of Caledonia at around 1:45 early Monday morning. A black pickup truck broadsided a southbound transport truck at the intersection when it appears the pickup did not stop at the stop sign.

The driver of the pickup truck was identified as 29-year-old John Hill and his passenger as 33-year-old Peter Bomberry both from the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. Both men sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene by the attending coroner.

A third man, 30 year old Josh Burnham – also of Six Nations – was cut out of the wreckage by the Haldimand County Fire Department and taken to Hamilton General Hospital with critical injuries. The driver of the transport, 56-year-old Ted Rowe of Glencoe, Ontario was not injured. Further investigation has revealed that the pickup truck registered to a New Brunswick address was reported stolen on Thursday Aug 21st, 2014 from a Halton Region, Ontario address. Lack of seatbelt use, speed, and failing to stop for a stop sign are being considered by the police as contributing factors in this collision.

    It’s too bad they were in a stolen vehicle and it’s too bad they were killed.

    May they rest in peace.

    My condolences to their families.
