Police have identified the man who died in an unfortunate turn of events on Highway 400.  Orillia OPP was called to a serious collision in the southbound lanes of the highway yesterday morning involving four vehicles that had the highway closed for over seven hours.  The investigation revealed that the driver of a southbound van lost control, hit a snow bank and flipped over near Vasey Road in Severn Township.  Another driver stopped to help the man in van when a transport truck and trailer tried to stop and jackknifed, hitting the man who was helping and a pickup truck following behind slammed into the tractor trailer.  The events lead to the death of 21-year-old Jonathan Antler-Paquette from Victoria Harbour.  The driver of the van was taken to hospital but has since been released while two other drivers involved were not injured.  Police continue to investigate.
