Killed in crash with plow

Ontario Provincial Police say one man died following a collision Friday night that has closed Highway 102 northwest of Thunder Bay.

Police say they received a call about a collision involving a tractor trailer and a snowplow on the highway at 9:55 p.m.

A 52-year-old male driver from Thunder Bay was pronounced dead at the scene.

They say a Miller snowplow travelling westbound west of Silver Falls Road was plowing snow when it collided with the eastbound tractor trailer.

Highway 102 is closed from the MTO weigh scales near Government Road to the Highway 11-17 junction, and police are requesting that traffic avoid the area until the investigation is complete.
