Around 3:00 a.m. on June 17, 2023, officers were dispatched to a serious two-vehicle, head-on collision on Skead Road, North of Pipeline Road.

Police, City of Greater Sudbury Fire Services and City of Greater Sudbury Paramedic Services arrived on scene and located three parties trapped in the two vehicles. The two individuals in the vehicle that crossed the centre line were extricated from the vehicle by Fire Services and were transported to hospital by Paramedic Services.

Unfortunately, the driver and lone occupant of the other vehicle, a 29-year-old man was pronounced deceased on scene. His name will not be released out of respect for the family’s wishes. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.
