Brennan Seguin, a first-year student-athlete at the University of Guelph, recently achieved a personal best U-Sports pole vault mark of 4.87 m.
A 17-year-old Glengarry District High School student died when the car he was driving collided with a tractor-trailer on Highway 401 near Morrisburg Wednesday.
Joshua Seguin was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident which occurred at 9:37 a.m.
He was driving eastbound in the westbound lane of the 401 when his passenger vehicle collided with the truck, reports the Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police detachment.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.

The county's own Brennan Seguin is seeded second entering the U20 men's pole vault competition, which will be held Sunday on the final day of the Canadian Track and Field Championships, in Ottawa.
The top-ranked vaulter is Jason Clare, checking in with a season-best mark of 4.70m, just ahead of Seguin at 4.65m. A Sherbrooke vaulter, Maxime Léveillé also has cleared 4.65m this season and is slated to jump eighth in the nine-man group.
Seguin, a student at Char-Lan DHS, trains with Rory Blackadder, of Martintown.
