A 23-year-old man died on the Niagara-bound QEW late Saturday night after his Honda Accord hit a tanker truck.

At around 10:30 p.m., Niagara regional police and Ontario Provincial Police were called to South Service Road near Sann Road in Lincoln. 

Investigators found the man was driving eastbound on the South Service Road when the vehicle left the roadway and entered the eastbound QEW lanes, Niagara police say. The car collided with a commercial vehicle.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, police say.
