One person has died and two people are injured following a crash involving two vehicles in Alliston on Friday afternoon.
According to OPP Sgt. Jason Folz, the crash involving a passenger vehicle and a dump truck occurred at 3:31 p.m. on Highway 89 near County Road 56.
Three people were involved in the crash, one of whom died, Folz said. The other two were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the crash is not yet known.
“It’s still very early in that investigation,” Folz said.
Folz said the crash involved a fire and that the fire department is on scene.
“We’re essentially blocking any access that people have to keep them out of the area just for their own safety right now, just due to the fire concerns and the investigative process,” Folz said.
