OPP have identified the person killed in a Highway 11 crash yesterday.

The two-vehicle collision involving a pickup truck and utility terrain vehicle (UTV) happened around 1:30 p.m. on June 15 east of Smooth Rock Falls.

The driver of the UTV, 27-year-old Nathan Reynolds of Gravenhurst, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to James Bay OPP. The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.

A stretch of Highway 11 between Cochrane and Smooth Rock Falls was closed in both directions for hours to allow for the investigation.

The Northeast Region OPP Traffic Incident Management and Enforcement Team (TIME) and the Technical Collision Investigators are investigating.

Last night, Hydro One shared one of its employees died after being hit by a vehicle in the Driftwood area.

"We are heartbroken to share that one of our employees lost their life after being struck by a vehicle in the Driftwood area today," Hydro One shared in a Facebook post June 15. 

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues. We're doing everything we can to support those affected by this tragic loss."

OrilliaMatters has reached out to Hydro One for further information.
