Investigation Continues into Fatal Plane Crash


On July 11, 2019 at around 9:00 a.m., members of the Superior East Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), the Wawa Volunteer Fire Department and Algoma Emergency Medical Services (EMS) were called to the scene of a plane crash in the Town of Hawk Junction, Ontario.

A team from the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) is currently at the scene conducting their investigation. The OPP can confirm that two adults are deceased as a result of the crash. Their identities are being withheld until post mortem examinations are conducted.

Montgomery Road in Hawk Junction remains closed (other than to local traffic) and will remain so for the duration of the TSB investigation. OPP is reminding motorists to please avoid the area while the investigation is ongoing.


  1. Hawk Air, in a post to its Facebook page this morning says the two deceased are pilot Adam Hobbs and co-worker Bob Gregorini.

    A rare occurrence that usually ends in fatalities when it happens.
    RIP guys.
