One person has died in the second fatal crash near Metcalfe in Ottawa's rural south end in less than 24 hours.

Paramedics said they responded to the single-vehicle crash at 9th Line and Pana roads at around 2:20 p.m. Saturday.

One adult was pronounced dead at the scene.

As of 5 p.m., 9th Line Road was still closed in both directions from Pana Road to Cooper Hill Road, police said.

The crash happened just a few kilometres south of another collision near Metcalfe Friday that left one person dead and five others injured.
