OPP say a 37-year-old man from Toronto has died following a snowmobile crash north of Parry Sound over the weekend.

Officials say at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 29, police responded to a collision involving two motorized snow vehicles on OFSC C trail north of Harris Lake Road in Wallbridge Township. They were assisted by EMS, Ornge air ambulance and the Britt Fire Department.

Police say an investigation determined that the two snowmachines were travelling southbound when they left the trail and both drivers were ejected from their machines.

As a result, one driver, 37-year-old Vasco Antunes of Toronto, died at the scene, while the other driver, also a 37-year-old from Toronto, sustained only minor injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
