Investigators say a pickup that was westbound on Perth Line 44 was struck by a pickup that was northbound on Perth Road 180, and both vehicles ended up in the ditch.
The occupants of the westbound pickup had to be extricated by fire crews and while Ornge Air Ambulance attended but did not transport any patients.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. A post mortem examination was completed on Saturday.
