Two people are dead following a three-vehicle collision on a Highway 6, near Anderson Lake Road, about 75 km west of Sudbury.
The noon-hour crash involving two passenger vehicles and a dump truck prompted provincial police to close the highway at Clear Lake to to Little Current Swing Bridge on Tuesday.
Two people were pronounced dead at the scene and three other occupants were taken to Health Sciences North in Sudbury.
Highway 6 was closed in both directions at Clear Lake Road, south of the Town of Espanola to Manitoulin Island. Police said the highway was to be re-opened later in the evening.
OPP asked anyone who may have witnessed the collision to phone them at 1-888-310-1122.
