UPDATE: OPP identify deceased in this morning’s Bracebridge collision
Police have identified the victim in this morning’s fatal collision in Bracebridge. OPP say it involved a motorcycle and a car at the Highway 118 overpass at Highway 11 this morning just before 7am.
The motorcyclist had been driving eastbound on Highway 118 when it happened. Thirty-six year-old Michelle Dorion-Parliament of Bracebridge was pronounced dead on scene.
An OPP Technical Traffic Collision Investigation (TTCI) Team is assisting with the investigation and Highway 118 at Highway 11 is currently closed as is the Highway 11 off ramp at that location. Police expect to re-open those portions of highway around noon.
Police would like to remind motor vehicle operators to be alert to the presence of all types of traffic; smaller vehicles such as motorcycles can be difficult to see and the speed of an approaching motorcycle can be hard to judge.
