Nearly five months after Galt Country Club general manager Brian Jolley was killed while riding his motorcycle north of Guelph, Wellington County OPP have laid charges against the 80-year-old driver they allege is responsible.
On September 20, 2022, at approximately 8:45 p.m., officers responded to a serious collision at the intersection of Highway 6 and Wellington Road 38, north of Guelph. Initial reports indicated that a motorcycle and a sedan had collided and that there were serious injuries.
The operator of the motorcycle was pronounced deceased at scene. The operator of the sedan was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.
As a result of the investigation, police charged a Guelph woman with careless driving causing death contrary to the Highway Traffic Act.
The defendant is scheduled to appear before the provincial offences court in Guelph at a later date.
Jolley, 47, was living in Fergus at the time of the crash.
He had been working at the Galt Country Club for three years.
