A New Hamburg man faces multiple charges after an 11-year-old Wellesley boy was killed in a collision Dec. 22.
Jeremy Huber, 11, of Wellesley and his family were travelling in a 2007 Dodge Caravan on Nafziger Road near Gerber Road in Wellesley Township when their vehicle was struck by a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee. He was transported to a Hamilton hospital with life-threatening injuries to which he eventually succumbed.
The driver of the Jeep, 33-year-old Jeremy Glenfield, has been charged with ‘impaired driving causing bodily harm,’ ‘refuse to provide breath sample,’ and ‘dangerous driving causing bodily harm.’
The accident was the second tragedy of the year for the Huber family: son Lyndal Huber, 17, was killed Mar. 20 in a single-vehicle crash in Palmerston when he lost control of his car, left the road and struck a pole.
