Death in 401 pileup near Brockville compounds Kingston family’s tragedy

Jack Moon and Krystiannah Summers.

The death of a man in a vehicle pileup on Highway 401 near Brockville has compounded the tragedy already experienced by a Kingston family this month.

The OPP continues to investigate the pileup which occurred in the westbound lanes of the 401 east of the City of Brockville on the afternoon of Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019. According to the OPP, a total of seven collisions were being investigated in an area that stretched almost six kilometers in length. A total of 25 commercial motor vehicles and 22 passenger vehicles were damaged as a result. Hundreds more were stuck in the traffic jam that resulted.

OPP have now confirmed that Jack Moon, a resident of Kingston, passed away in the crash. Moon was the lone driver and occupant of the vehicle. He was 33 years old.

In early December, Moon and his family were displaced from their home after it was completely destroyed in a fire. The family, which included Moon, his expecting wife, three young children and Moon’s mother, had just recently moved into their new home after the Kingston community rallied in support after the fire, and were still in the process of trying to rebuild their life. The family also lost one of their dogs after the fire.

At the time of the crash, Moon had been travelling back to Kingston after a brief, early morning trip to Ottawa to obtain replacement passports for his family. As a way to reduce the emotional turmoil they had been experiencing in the aftermath of the devastating fire, Moon had been planning to take his children on a family trip over the Christmas holidays.

Moon leaves behind his wife, Krystiannah Summers, who is expecting a child in April, and the couple’s three young children.

A GoFundMe page, originally set up to assist the family after the fire, remains open to anyone wishing to assist the family.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Leeds OPP at 613 345 1790 or 1-888-310-1122.
