Man, 45, killed in off-road collision in Minden
A 45-year-old man was killed in an off-road single-vehicle collision in Minden Hills over the weekend.
Haliburton Highlands OPP says the man was the lone rider on an off-road vehicle (ORV) when it crashed on County Road 121 and Rice Road late Sunday afternoon.
Haliburton County paramedics took the rider to a local hospital. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
The area was temporarily closed for the investigation.
The victim was identified as a Fergus, Ont., resident.
The death prompted police to remind the public to exercise caution to "reduce the rising the number of all-terrain vehicle or ORV incidents."
Police say to always prepare for the unexpected by carrying a tool kit, first-aid supplies, tow rope, flashlight, tire repair kit, food and cell phone.
