East Algoma OPP says the second driver involved in a vehicle collision has passed away.
OPP Constable Kyle Ney says 54-year-old Steven Pollock on North Shore Township passed away from his injuries yesterday.
Ney says Pollock was driving a plow truck involved in a collision with a transport truck on Sunday night, just before midnight near the Town of Spanish.
Ney says the operator of the tractor-trailer was confirmed deceased at the scene, but no name has been released pending notification of kin.
Originally, Ney had stated the transport was travelling east and the plow west, but the investigation has now revealed the opposite to be true with the transport travelling west and the plow east.
He adds the Ministry of Labour and OPP technical collision investigators are continuing the investigation.
