An 80-year-old man has died following a three-vehicle collision in Collingwood on Wednesday morning, OPP say.

Officers were called to the scene of a crash in the area of Mountain Road and Kells Crescent at about 8:45 a.m., police say.

OPP say an investigation found that a vehicle travelling westbound veered into oncoming traffic, colliding with one vehicle and forcing another into a ditch in the process.

The westbound vehicle continued off the road and came to a stop at a nearby property, police add.

An 80-year-old driver was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased, officers say.
