Highway 7 has re-opened after yesterday’s single-vehicle fatal collision.

Lanark County OPP continue the investigation into the collision that took the life of a driver of a transport truck.

It happened just west of Carleton Place, when a transport truck left Highway 7 and rolled over shortly before 1:00 p.m. yesterday afternoon. (December 23, 2019).

Officers, Mississippi Mills Fire Fighters and Lanark County Paramedics were called to the scene but efforts to reach the driver were hampered by downed hydro lines as the truck had snapped a hydro poll in the collision. That resulted in a small power outage in the immediate area. The power has since been restored. 

The driver’s name has not been released as of yet.

The cause of the collision has not been revealed either.
