Middlesex OPP continue to investigate two fatal crashes.
Early Sunday morning, Police were called to a single motor vehicle crash on Centre Road at approximately 7:45 a.m. to find a Chevrolet car on the banks of the Ausable River.
Investigators say the car was travelling southbound on Centre Road when it crossed the northbound lane and left the roadway. It traveled down an embankment, rolled, and came to a rest on the south side of the river, according to police.
The driver, and lone occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The OPP Technical Traffic Collision Investigators (TTCI) attended the scene to assist with the investigation. Late Monday morning, OPP identified the victim as 35-year-old Quentin MacGregor of North Middlesex.
Meanwhile, Provincial police have identified the victim of Saturday’s fatal three-vehicle collision in Middlesex Centre.
Middlesex OPP, Middlesex Centre Fire, and Middlesex-London EMS responded to the scene at the intersection of Vanneck Road and Egremont Drive in Middlesex Centre around 1:05 p.m.
Investigators say a GMC pickup truck had been travelling northbound when it collided at the intersection, which is governed by traffic lights, with an eastbound Dodge car. The Dodge then collided with a Honda car that had been travelling westbound on Egremont, police said.
The driver of the Honda was pronounced deceased at the scene, and was identified by police on Sunday as Marion Satchwill, 81, of Strathroy-Caradoc.
The three occupants of the Dodge, a 19-year-old West Elgin male, a 19-year-old Middlesex Centre male, and a 16-year-old Middlesex Centre female, were all transported from the scene to hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Dodge, the 19-year-old from West Elgin, had to be extricated from the vehicle.
Police on Sunday said that all three remained in hospital, and that their conditions had improved. The driver was upgraded to fair condition, while the two passengers were listed in good condition, police said.
The three occupants of the GMC pickup, a 46-year-old male and two female children, aged five and three, all from Middlesex Centre, did not attend hospital.
The collision remains under investigation.
