With its traffic data now finalized, the OPP is reporting three fatal road collisions over the Civic Day Long Weekend and has updated its preliminary Move Over campaign results.

The first collision occurred on Friday evening, August 4, 2017 in Peterborough County, claiming the life of a 20-year old female. The other two collisions occurred on Monday, August 7, one in Lanark County which resulted in the death of a 35 year-old female and the other in Southern Georgian Bay in which a 22 year-old man was killed.
