(KENORA, ON) – A serious highway collision occurred last night in the Kenora area when a transport and pick-up truck collided.
The driver of the pick-up truck, Stanley Barkman, was pulled over and helping another person that was also involved in a collision when the incident unfolded.
Barkman was not injured in the collision, but it is believed the truck is a write-off after the damage it incurred.
Barkman went viral in 2016 when he walked from Sioux Lookout, Ontario to Fort McMurray, Alberta to help raise funds for the fire that occurred in Fort McMurray which left thousands homeless.
Stanley Barkman’s father, Robert Barkman described what happened during the collision “My son Stanley Barkman had an accident last night in Kenora area. He’s ok…shookin up but he’ll be ok. Thank God he’s ok. That’s his mom’s truck, [he] came for service in Winnipeg now it’s kah-poot… damn it”
Robert continued “Semi truck rear-ended him and along with other vehicles on the highway…. he pulled over to go help with another accident then this happened. Now how am I gonna replace the truck… DAMN… My son is ok…. He was taken to Kenora by OPP police”
