A woman was killed and a 19-year-old Pembroke man was airlifted to hospital after a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 60 near Algonquin Park early Monday morning.

Gorman was airlifted to hospital in Ottawa. His passenger, an adult female, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name will not be released until next of kin are notified.
The crash closed parts of Highway 60 for several hours Monday. The highway reopened Monday afternoon.
