A male driver is dead after a small passenger car he was driving collided with a minivan Tuesday afternoon just east of Clinton, Huron County OPP said in a release late Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators have determined the car was travelling westbound on Huron Road (Hwy. 8) when “for unknown reasons” it crossed over the centre line and collided with the minivan, which was eastbound at the time.

Police rushed to the scene at about 2:15 p.m. The male driver and sole occupant of the car was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem will be conducted in London on Wednesday.

Both people in the minivan had to be extricated from the heavily damaged vehicle. The female driver was transported to hospital in London with life-threatening injuries; her male passenger is in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers from OPP West Region remained on the scene Tuesday evening.

No names have been released pending the notification of next of kin.
