The OPP has partially identified the two people killed in Sunday’s crash on Highway 60.
At about 4:00pm that afternoon a small car crossed the centre line, collided with a tour bus, flipped, and then hit another car. It happened at the entrance to Algonquin Park’s west gate. The OPP says a man and a woman, both 40-years-old and both from Italy, lost their lives.
The bus driver is a 52-year-old man from Clarence Crescent, while the driver of the second car is a 36-year-old woman from Oakville. Both had minor injuries. The Oakville woman’s passenger, a 34-year-old man from Mississauga, was airlifted to a Toronto hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The OPP has not released any names.
Highway 60 was closed at both ends of Algonquin Park that day as the OPP investigated the crash and crews cleaned up the debris and liquids left behind. The closure lasted more than six hours, causing significant traffic issues.
