Family, friends, and coworkers are remembering the life of a 28-year-old London man who died Tuesday in a fatal collision in the city’s east end.
Emergency crews responded to the area of Clarke Road north of Dundas Street around 6:20 a.m. after a Mini Cooper jumped the curb and collided with a tree on the boulevard of a home.
Tammy Dennett, who lives at the address where the collision took place, told 980 CFPL the passenger side door of the vehicle had to be cut open so the driver and lone occupant could be extricated.
Police said Wednesday that Adam J. Umbelina, 28, of London was pronounced dead in the crash.
Few other details have been released, and the investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing, police said.
A memorial for Umbelina has been set up outside of the Dennett home by those who knew him. Nearly two dozen people held a vigil at the scene late Wednesday morning to remember the 28-year-old and pay their respects.
