Police say a tractor trailer and a five-ton flat-bed truck collided head-on. Officers and emergency crews were sent to the crash site just before noon.
The driver of the five-ton, Remi Breault, 44, of New Liskeard, Ont., was pronounced dead at the scene.
OPP say the other driver suffered minor injuries.
Highway 11 remains closed at Earlton in both directions between Highway 562 and Highway 571. It's unknown when it will re-open to traffic.
A detour is available via Thornloe, Ont.
