A Calgary man has been charged in a deadly weekend rollover that occurred on a provincial highway in southwestern Ontario.
The incident unfolded in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401, east of Colonel Talbot Road, in London, Ont., on Saturday night. The Ontario Provincial Police were called to the scene just after 8:30 p.m.
Police say that a Chevrolet Equinox left the highway, ended up in a ditch and rolled.
Five people were in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Two of them were taken to hospital, one of whom later succumbed to his injuries.
The eastbound lanes of the highway were closed after the crash, as police investigated the scene. They have since reopened.
On Sunday, the OPP announced that the 25-year-old driver faced five charges in connection with the deadly crash.
The charges included impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death, failure to provide a breath sample and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
Police have not yet released the name of the deceased.
