A fatal accident on the Henri Séguin Bridge claimed the life of a Rockland man over the November 12 weekend.

The OPP, Prescott-Russell Paramedic Services, and The Nation fire department responded to a call November 12 about a vehicle going through the guard rail of the Henri Séguin Bridge at the intersection of County Road 9 and Concession 12.

The accident report was called in after 4 p.m. Police, paramedics, and firefighters arriving on the scene found a large truck upside down in the South Nation River.

The driver of the vehicle, a 27-year-old Rockland man, was pronounced dead on the scene. His name has been withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The OPP Technical Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Unit continues its investigation of the incident to determine the reason why the vehicle went off the bridge.
