A 78-year old Ontario man died in a single vehicle collision on Route 145 in Union.
The accident occurred in the evening hours of Aug. 13. At approximately 7:34 pm, Prince District RCMP, Alberton Fire Department and Island EMS responded to the report.
“We rolled out with approximately 15 people, three trucks, and by the time we got on scene, Island EMS was already there,” said Shannon Dumville, chief of the Alberton Fire Department. “They were loading the patient on the stretcher as we showed up, and we helped put the patient on the stretcher.”
Route 145 was closed for approximately an hour while emergency personnel and investigators were on scene. The lone occupant of the vehicle was transported to Prince County Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
The investigation into the collision is ongoing.
