A three-vehicle collision on the QEII has resulted in the death of a 46-year-old man.

At about 10 10:25 p.m. on Oct. 1, RCMP were dispatched to a serious motor vehicle collision northbound on the QEII at the Hwy 53 overpass. A pick up truck hauling a utility trailer collided with a mini-van and an SUV, all of which were northbound.

The minivan caught on fire and the male driver of the minivan remained trapped in the vehicle and succumbed to injuries received. The male driver of the pickup truck was not injured and the female driver of the SUV was transported to hospital by ground ambulance, with non-life-threatening injuries.

An RCMP collision analyst has attended to conduct an investigation. RCMP and Sheriffs remain on scene to assist with traffic. Northbound traffic is being briefly diverted at the overpass but remains flowing and southbound traffic is not affected.

Weather is considered to a be contributing factor in this collision. Further information is not available at this time.
