UPDATE: Pedestrian Struck And Killed On Hwy 401

A North York man has been struck and killed by a vehicle in Elgin County.

The Ontario Provincial Police says on Sunday around 1:30pm, a black, four-door sedan struck the man just west of Blacks Rd.

Police say the North York man was the driver of a tractor trailer and had exited his vehicle, which was stopped on the south shoulder of the highway.

The driver of the car, an Ilderton man, was not injured in the collision.

The eastbound lanes of Hwy. 401 were closed between Furnival Rd. and Orford Rd. for several hours while officers conducted an investigation. The highway has since been reopened but the eastbound off ramp to Orford Rd. remains closed.
