Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) continue to investigate after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a tractor trailer on County Road 46 in Tecumseh on Monday, Dec. 11.
According to police, the pedestrian was struck by the truck around 9 p.m. on North County Road 46 (North Talbot Road) between Sexton Side Road and County Road 17.
The collision left the pedestrian critically injured in a ditch on the side of the road. He was transported to a local hospital where the person later died from injuries sustained in the collision.
County Road 46 remained closed for several hours Monday night as police investigated. Reports indicate that a tanker-style tractor trailer meant for carrying milk remained at the scene throughout the investigation.
