One person died and three were injured when a vehicle and a snowplow collided near Hamilton early Saturday morning.
The crash happened on Centennial Parkway near Webster Road at 2:30 a.m. Police say it appears a southbound dump truck snowplow collided with a northbound vehicle carrying three people.
Two passengers in the vehicle were trapped, including one who was pronounced dead at the scene. The other was taken to hospital in critical condition. A third person, believed to be the driver, suffered minor injuries. The driver of the snowplow also sustained minor injuries.
The parkway was closed in both directions for nine hours while police investigated.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but snow was falling at the time and visibility in the area was under two kilometres.
The first of two Alberta clippers moved through southern Ontario overnight, bringing heavy snow and wind gusts up to 45 km/h to parts of the region. The second will arrive on Sunday, boosting temperatures above freezing.
