A transport truck driver is facing criminal charges after he allegedly rolled through a stop sign on a country road in southwestern Ontario, killing three people and sending a toddler to hospital. 

Gurvinder Singh, 38, from Brampton was behind the wheel of his rig when the vehicle occupied by London couple Walter and Donna Yetman, and 28-year old Stephanie Roloson was hit on June 21.

The crash happened northwest of Listowel, at Perth Road 178 and Perth Line 88, an intersection that has a flashing red-light denoting the one-way stop sign. 

A two-year old boy was also in the vehicle with the deceased and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Singh was released with a court date set for Sept. 30 in Goderich.
