One person is dead and another seriously injured after a two-vehicle crash along Hwy. 416 on Tuesday morning.
The crash happened shortly after 7:30 a.m., in the southbound lanes near the Hunt Club overpass. Ottawa OPP say the two vehicles were not in a head-on collision, but what exactly happened remains unclear.
“It’s too early yet,” said OPP Const. Rheal Levac.
Snow squalls were blowing through the west end at the time of the crash, but it is not known if the weather conditions were a factor.
The crash has shut down the southbound lanes, but police say traffic closures will be wide-reaching. Police have closed the southbound Hwy. 416, at Hwy. 417. A stretch of Hunt Club Rd. is also being blocked.
The genders or ages of those involved in the crash are unknown so far.
Police are continuing their investigation. OPP ask anyone who may have any information about the crash to contact the detachment at 613-270-9171.
