An 81-year-old Cambridge man is dead after his grey Mazda collided with a tractor trailer on Old Beverly Road in North Dumfries Township on Wednesday.

The car was travelling west toward Cambridge when it crossed the centre line and collided with a truck travelling in the opposite direction.

Waterloo Regional Police spokesman Dave Obermeyer says the driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene. His name will not be released until next of kin have been notified.

Obermeyer says the 44-year-old truck driver was taken to Cambridge Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
