An Arnprior man was killed last night when the transport truck he was driving on Highway 401 near Whitby collided with a Jeep Wrangler.

The driver of the Jeep was later arrested for impaired driving causing death.

The 32-year-old North York man was not injured in the crash.

The truck driver, 51-year-old Lindsay Findlay, was westbound on the 401 behind the Jeep, when the driver lost control and was rear-ended by Findlay’s truck.

The transport rolled over, blocking all three lanes of the highway.

Findlay was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident occurred Tuesday night, just after 10 p.m. and the highway remained closed this morning.

The OPP continue to investigate the collision.
