A Bradford West Gwillmbury man was charged this week in connection with a fatal car crash.

An 84-year-old pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in the area of Holland Street West and Toronto Street on the afternoon of Feb. 24, according to South Simcoe Police Service.

He was taken to a Toronto trauma centre but died of his injuries in March.

A 55-year-old man was charged Wednesday with careless driving and operating an unsafe vehicle, following an “exhaustive investigation” by the South Simcoe Police Traffic Unit.

Police are not releasing the names of either men, but the driver will appear in a Barrie court to face charges next month.
