Fatal collision near Thunder Bay leaves 5 dead
Five people are dead after a multi-vehicle collision in northwestern Ontario, a provincial police spokesperson confirmed Sunday.
Ontario Provincial Police were called to the scene on Highway 17 east of English River just before 11 p.m. ET on Saturday. They found a westbound pickup truck had collided with an eastbound commercial vehicle.
The driver of the commercial vehicle and the occupants of the pickup were all killed in crash.
"OPP is on scene, and currently investigating," Sgt. Shelley Garr said Sunday morning.
"At this point in time, we have not confirmed the identities of the deceased," she said.
Two other commercial vehicles were damaged in the collision but no one else was hurt.
Highway 17 between Upsala and Ignace re-opened Sunday morning, after closing overnight for the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call provincial police in Thunder Bay at 807-939-2133 or 1-888-310-1122.
