Police say speed was a factor in a fatal crash on Six Nations of the Grand River on Thursday.

A man driving a Kia Forte north on Tuscarora Road around 5:45 p.m. was killed after his speeding vehicle slammed into a pickup truck that had just cleared the four-way stop at Third Line.

Witnesses called 911 after the crash, in which police said one of the vehicles rolled over.

A woman in the pickup truck needed medical attention for her injuries. Police said they were children in the truck at the time of the crash.

The OPP’s collision reconstruction team helped with the Six Nations Police investigation of the crash, which caused major damage to both vehicles and prompted the roads to the closed for some hours.

Police say the victim’s family has been notified. No details about the driver were shared publicly.
