A name hasn’t been released as police are still trying to contact family.

Investigators say a car had stopped on the traveled portion of the southbound lane on Grey Rd. 8 due to whiteout conditions at the time, just before lunch.  The driver had exited his vehicle and was standing at the back of the vehicle when he and his vehicle were struck by a southbound International tanker truck.  The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A third vehicle became involved when it hit the tanker truck.  Two occupants in the CRV were taken to Mount Forest Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  The driver of the tanker truck was not injured, but was taken to hospital for observation.

Police are still investigating.
