Two people have died in a single-vehicle crash near Brockville

Two people are dead and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is appealing to the public for information following reports of a single-vehicle crash north of Brockville early Monday morning, hours after the alleged collision.

It’s unclear what exactly happened or when, according to an OPP press release issued Monday evening.

On Monday, just before 6 a.m., the OPP unit in Leeds County received information about a heavily damaged vehicle in a ditch.

When officers arrived at the scene on Kitley Elizabethtown Townline Road – a narrow street east of County Road 29 – they found a vehicle and the bodies of two people: a 62-year-old Frankville man and a 30-year-old Brockville woman.

“The collision is believed to have occurred several hours before it was discovered because the vehicle’s engine was cold to the touch,” the OPP said in a statement.

The police carried out an inspection at the scene. The Office of the Chief Coroner and the Office of Forensic Pathology are investigating.

The scene is about 20 kilometers northwest of Brockville and 80 kilometers south of Ottawa.
