“Initial observations of the scene suggested that the vehicle was travelling at a very high rate of speed, eastbound on Fifth Line Road, when it crossed the road and went into the north ditch, where it struck a culvert and a hydro pole,” police said in a release on Monday.

The deceased are a 31 year-old man who died on scene and a 36-year-old woman who died in hospital.
