Man dies in single vehicle Highway 400 collision (5 photos)

A man was pronounced dead on the scene of the single vehicle collision near Mapleview Drive ONroute this morning

A single vehicle collision early Tuesday morning on Highway 400 northbound has left one person dead.

All northbound lanes on Highway 400 north of Mapleview Drive were closed for several hours as the OPP investigated into the collision that occurred in front of the ONroute at about 7:45 a.m.

A male passenger was pronounced dead on the scene, while the driver of the SUV did not suffer severe physical injuries, though was disturbed from the collision. 

“They’re very shaken up, as is everyone investigating this,” said OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. “Anytime there is a death investigation, obviously it is traumatic on everybody involved — on first responders, as well as those involved.

"Certainly condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy and we will share information if it is appropriate and available.”

Police will not be releasing the identity of the deceased.
