Man dies after rollover on Hwy. 417
Ottawa paramedics say a 23-year-old man is dead after a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 417.
The crash happened just after 2 a.m. Sunday in the westbound lanes near the Rockdale Road exit.
The man's mother, a 54-year-old woman who was driving the car, sustained minor injuries.
Ottawa paramedics say it appears she swerved to avoid a moose or deer and lost control of the vehicle. It then went into a ditch and had smoke coming out of it, according to Ottawa Fire Services.
Ontario Provincial Police are investigating but say speed alcohol, seat belt usage and distracted driving are not considered factors in this collision.
