Lanark County OPP have identified the driver killed in a single vehicle truck crash on Monday as 67 year-old John Iles, of Brooklin – which is part of Whitby in south-western Ontario.

The investigation into the collision continues.

A transport truck left Highway-7 just west of Carleton Place and rolled over shortly before 1:00 p.m. on December 23rd. First responders arrived quickly, but downed hydro lines slowed their efforts to reach the victim. OPP say ILES died from injuries suffered in the collision.

Highway-7 was closed until 5:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve while the OPP conducted its investigation.

The cause of the collision itself is still being investigated.
