Investigators say the driver failed to stop for a stop sign

South Simcoe Police are appealing for witnesses as a result of a crash that claimed the life of a 40-year-old man from Bradford.

At around 7:30 Friday evening, police received a report of a pickup truck involved in a single-vehicle collision in the area of Walker Avenue and the 6th Line of Bradford West Gwillimbury. Police determined the lone male failed to stop for a stop sign at Walker Avenue. The truck went through the 3-way intersection, breached a guardrail and came to rest on Morris Road.

Investigators say speed, alcohol use and seatbelt use are some of the factors being looked into as a cause for the crash.
