Deadly collision closes Ontario highway

The male driver of the vehicle was pronounce dead at the scene. Police say that weather could have been a factor in the accident as the area was experiencing reduced visibility

The road was opened at about 1 a.m.

Environment Canada had placed much of the region under a snow squall warning earlier in the day.

The bad weather continues today with whiteout conditions forcing Barrie officials to cancel much of the community events.

For the Greater Toronto Area, messy weather is expected to hit just in time for the evening commute.
