Driver killed


Yesterday around 11:20 a.m., Dryden OPP officers responded to a single motor-vehicle mishap on Highway 502, about 60 km south of Dryden.

A highway line-painting truck travelling southbound lost control and left the roadway, rolling over.

The driver of the vehicle, Michael Gibson, a 40-year-old resident of Worthington, Ont., was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem was scheduled to take place today in Kenora.

The Technical Traffic Collision Investigation (TTCI) unit attended the scene to conduct its investigation.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation.

Highway 502 was completely closed for about two-and-a-half hours, then fully opened seven-and-a-half hours after the incident occurred.
