GUELPH, Ont. – Police say they still haven’t determined if charges will be laid in the death of a man who was hit while driving his wheelchair on a street in Guelph.

The 63-year-old Guelph man was driving a motorized wheelchair northbound in the southbound lane next to the curb on the evening of Nov. 9 when he collided with a southbound car.

James Holliday of Guelph was taken to hospital in critical condition and died of his injuries about an hour after the collision.

The driver of the car, a 45-year-old Burlington, Ont., man, did not suffer any injuries.
