Oakville man killed in two-vehicle crash on Highway 401
Provincial police say they began investigating last month after hearing from other law enforcement agencies that drugs were being imported in vehicles shipped to Canada by rail.
A crash Saturday afternoon on Highway 401 near West Lorne claimed the life of an Oakville man and injured two others.
The highway was closed between 2 and 6 p.m. while OPP investigated.
Police say a blue Buick car was travelling eastbound when it left the roadway and crossed over the centre median. The Buick struck a black Ford pickup truck, which was travelling westbound.
The driver, and lone occupant of the Buick, a 73-year-old male, died at the scene.
The occupants of the Ford, both from Fonthill, suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The 70-year-old male driver was transported by air ambulance and his adult female passenger was transported by land ambulance to hospital, where they remain.
