London Police are investigating a fatal crash on Wonderland Road South at the 402.
Officers have confirmed the road has reopened following an overnight closure, but efforts to determine the cause of the crash have just begun.
London Police Staff Sgt. Trish MacIntyre said they were called to the collision between a small car and a tractor trailer at 9:41p.m. Wednesday night.
“Fire and ambulance were on scene, a vehicle was pinned under the tractor trailer and occupants had to be extricated,” said Staff Sgt. MacIntyre. “A male driver was pronounced at the scene, his identity to be later disseminated upon next of kin notification. A female passenger was also in the vehicle, she was extricated and transported to hospital. She remains in serious but non-life-threatening condition at this time.”
The transport truck driver was not injured in the crash.
Staff Sgt. MacIntyre said the Traffic Management Unit is now working to determine the cause of the crash.
“It was raining at the time and almost kind of a sleet, the air temperature had dropped so it was definitely cold, it was rainy and dark in that area because you’re at Wonderland Road South, so the investigation turns now over to our Traffic Reconstruction, our Traffic Management Unit, those officers continue the investigation and process the results from the reconstruction to determine speed and fault of the drivers involved,” she said.
