A man has been pronounced deceased after being seriously injured in a five-vehicle crash.
The crash happened on Oct. 25 just before 7 a.m. on Highway 24.
Ten people were hospitalized with varying injuries as a result of the crash.
One of the people injured was airlifted to a Hamilton hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries.
He was pronounced dead by attending physicians on Nov. 6.
Police identified the man as 40-year-old Kevin Coutts of Ingersoll.
According to family members Coutts was a father of two and had celebrated his wedding just a few months ago.
"He seemed to automatically demand attention. People gravitated towards him, very welcoming, and just loved everybody for just who they were," said his sister Darlene Woodley.
His sister says Coutts was the passenger in a pickup truck involved in the crash. She says he was heading to a job site in Simcoe with the company he began working for less than a year ago.
According to a press release, the investigation was ongoing, and police said charges were pending.
