Yesterday at approximately 7:30 p.m., OPP responded to a motor vehicle collision approximately one kilometre south of Harris Lake Road in The Archipelago Township. 

The OPP says that a south bound vehicle crossed the centre line and clipped the rear wheels of a commercial motor vehicle.

The vehicle tried to correct and headed towards the west side ditch, but the driver then overcorrected again and came across the centre line in front of another north bound vehicle.  As a result of the collision, both vehicles ended up in the east side ditch.

The driver of the south bound vehicle, 35-year-old Alain Lamontagne, of Timmins, was killed in the crash.  Two passengers in the vehicle were transported to hospital with serious injuries.

Police say the driver of the second vehicle was examined at the scene and released.
