Police continue to search for the driver of a white cube van that possibly has front-end damage, after a fatal collision south of Arthur.

Robert Crosby, 66, of Dundalk was pronounced dead at the scene after a number of vehicles collided during white-out conditions Friday around 1:45 p.m. on Highway 6.

Four other people were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

OPP have said it's too early to say whether the weather was the cause of the crash, even though there were harsh conditions at the time.

Wellington OPP initially sent out a photo of a van with blue writing on it, but now say officers have spoken with the driver of that van and confirmed it was not involved in the collision.

Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact Wellington OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
