One of the victims in Tuesday’s rollover north of Highway 12 has died.

The Orillia Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is still investigating the crash, which happened in Ramara Township.

At 7:31 a.m., on Tuesday, police were dispatched to County Road 46 north of Highway 12 where officers discovered the scene, which involved one vehicle. The 22 year old male driver from Selkirk was ejected from the vehicle and suffered life threatening injuries.

The 21 year old female passenger from Sebright suffered minor injuries.

The two occupants of the vehicle were transported by ambulance to a local hospital and the male was later air lifted to a Toronto trauma centre.

Police say the driver, Jacob Haylock, has since succumbed to his injuries and died yesterday.

The OPP Technical Collision Investigators (TCI) is continuing their investigation into the cause of the collision.
