One man was killed and two passengers in his vehicle suffered serious injuries after a three-vehicle accident on Highway 69 last night around 7:30 p.m.

Ontario Provincial Police say 35-year old Alain Lamongtange from Timmins died after his southbound vehicle crossed the centre line, clipped the back tires of a transport and then lost control before hitting pickup truck and ending up in a ditch.

OPP Constable Miles Loach said a 70-kilometre stretch of Highway 69 was shut down until about 5:30 a.m. this morning.

The driver of the pickup was examined at the scene and released and the investigation into the cause is continuing.

Original story:

Highway 69 was closed between Highway 124 in Parry Sound and Highway 522 near Grundy Lake Provincial Park for about eight hours overnight.

The OPP first announced the road closure at 9:10 p.m. Wednesday night. It was reopened by 5:21 a.m. Thursday morning.

No information has been provided as to why the roadway was closed.
