Fundraiser Set up For Family Of 15-Year-Old Killed In Crash North Of Manilla

KAWARTHA LAKES-Brock Marshall was just shy of his 16th birthday when he was killed in a car crash on October 24th.

The Sunderland teen was fatally injured after a pickup truck he was riding in lost control and left the roadway on Sideline Road 18 near Brock Concession Road 9 in the Township of Brock according to police.

Police say a grey 2006 Chevrolet Sierra pickup truck was southbound on Sideline Road 18 when it lost control, left the roadway and rolled into a ditch. The vehicle had seven teenaged occupants onboard and was driven by a 16-year old female from Sunderland. Four of the occupants were ejected during the rollover.

The remaining six occupants, all ages 15 to 17, were transported to local hospitals and later air-lifted to Toronto based trauma centers. Two are currently listed in critical condition, the other four are now listed in serious but stable condition.

Brock is being remembered as incredibly enthusiastic with an outgoing personality and a great sense of humour according to his obituary.

“He loved the great outdoors and enjoyed mountain biking, dirt biking, 4 wheeling, snowmobiling and would never turn down an opportunity to go fishing or hunting. He was a hardworking and dedicated young man. For the past four years, he took pride in working on the farm at Brethour Stables. He was a fierce and fun competitor in both high-level hockey and rugby, recently picked to play with Ontario Rugby. Brock was very kind and loving and his endless smile will never be forgotten.” read the online obituary.

He leaves behind his parents, Rick and Diane, and sisters, Tess and Della. Donations are being accepted to assist the family during this difficult and unexpected tragedy.
