“Initial investigation revealed that a northbound Chrysler Sebring crossed the centre line into the south bound lane striking a Chevrolet Uplander, then continued northbound in the south bound lane colliding head on with Jeep Commander,” the OPP said in a release Monday.
Russell Galbraith, 29, driver of the northbound Chrysler Sebring, died in hospital from injuries he sustained in the accident.
The driver and passenger of the Jeep Commander were transported to hospital and are in serious but stable condition.
The OPP closed Highway 69 for about six hours while the on-scene investigation was completed with help from an OPP collision reconstructionist. The highway is now open.
Also on Sunday, a two-vehicle collision closed Highway 17 near Wahnapitae.
The road was closed around 2 p.m. Emergency crews had to rescue one person who was trapped inside their vehicle. There were no major injuries and the road is now open.
