Collision claims life of 75-year-old Whitby man

A 75-year-old Whitby man was pronounced dead at the scene of a collision Monday (June 22) afternoon.

According to the DRPS, officers were called to the collision at the intersection of Country Lane and Columbus Road West in Whitby around 1:15 p.m.

“A black GMC Terrain that was southbound on Country Lane failed to yield at a stop sign at Columbus Road and collided with a Dodge Ram pickup pulling a utility trailer eastbound on Columbus Road,” reads a media release.

“The collision caused the Ram pickup and trailer to leave the roadway and roll over in a farm field.”

The driver of the GMC Terrain, whose name has not been released, was the lone occupant in that vehicle and succumbed to the injuries he sustained at the collision scene.

The 45-year-old male driver of the Dodge pickup was taken to a local hospital by EMS with minor injuries and released.

The road was closed for several hours for the police investigation.
