The OPP says Jonathan Lucas, 32, has been identified as the victim of a fatal crash on Tuesday morning.

Police said Lucas was travelling southbound on Perth Road 121 around 6:15 a.m., near Millbank – about 35 kilometres from Waterloo – when his red Chevrolet Avalanche SUV crossed over the centre line before entering a ditch and hitting a tree.

Police said Lucas had died by the time they arrived.

It’s not exactly clear what caused Lucas to go off the road. Investigators remained at the scene of the accident until around noon.

Lucas lived in West Perth.
