A 35-year-old Kitchener man is dead after his car struck a tree west of St. Agatha.  

Police say Arthur Campbell was travelling westbound on Erb's Road in a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier early Monday morning when the car left the roadway.

Emergency services received a call at about 4:15 a.m.

The fire department extracted Campbell, who was the sole occupant, from the vehicle.

He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

As a result of the crash, police had closed Erb's Road between Sandhills and Nafziger roads in Wilmot Township for almost four hours.

Police are looking for witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call WRPS Traffic Services at 519 653 7700 ext. 8856 or email traffic@wrps.on.ca.
