A Cannington resident was one of two people killed in a collision near Manilla over the weekend.

According to the OPP, a vehicle travelling north on Simcoe Street “passed unsafely” and collided with head-on with a southbound vehicle.

Both drivers, who were the lone occupants in their respective vehicles, were pronounced dead at the scene.

They’ve been identified as Joseph Duchesne, 32, of Oakville and Mark Wallace, 57, of Cannington.

The roads were closed for several hours for the police investigation.

In an interview with The Brock Voice, a close friend of Wallace confirmed that he was heading south that day, en route to pick up his partner from work.
