OPP have identified the victim in yesterday's fatal collision on Highway 89 near Shelburne.  '

But that hasn't been without its own issues.

Police say 66 year old "Leonard Ford" of Hanover was pronounced dead at the scene when his vehicle collided with a transport near Violet Hill Monday morning around 9:15. 

The investigation into the cause continues.  

The highway was closed for several hours.  

It appears as if Mr. Ford has a number of aliases. 

Most Hanover area residents will know him better as 55 year old Louie Rankin, a Grammy award winning reggae artist and actor who owned a Jamaican restaurant a few years ago.

Wikipedia and other online sources including Twitter have also identified him as Louie Forbes.
