A 25-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene of a three-truck collision on the westbound Highway 401 in South Glengarry Tuesday.

Initial Investigation has indicated that shortly after 5 p.m, a westbound tractor trailer struck a second tractor trailer; the second tractor trailer then struck a third tractor trailer, reports the Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police detachment.

While the driver of the first tractor trailer was killed, the other two drivers were uninjured.
