Londoner Dies In Huron County Crash

A London man is dead after the van he was in hit a deer, slid down an embankment and came to a rest in a creek near Clinton.

The OPP says officers were called to London Rd. around 3:30am Wednesday morning. A Nissan Quest had hit a deer and the driver lost control of the van, veered across the northbound lane and off the road. It went down a steep embankment, across a muddy field and stopped in a shallow creek bed.

Errol Brown, 39, was pronounced dead in hospital.

The driver, 40-year-old Mark Hylton and 40-year-old Lyle Riddell were both airlifted to a London hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Both Lloyd Cohen, 27, and Eloid Drummond, 42, were taken to a local hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

London Rd. has since been reopened. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
