One person has died after a collision on Highway 6 through Freelton Wednesday morning.

A 55-year-old man from Hamilton was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition around 9 a.m., where he was later pronounced deceased.

Provincial police say two vehicles travelling in opposite directions collided.

The driver of the transport truck was heading southbound between Maddaugh Road and Campbellville Road, when they struck the northbound driver.

The southbound vehicle ended up hitting a house off of the highway.

No injuries to the northbound driver were reported.

Police say the incident was possibly the result of a medical event.

They are also trying to get in touch with the owner of the home.

All southbound lanes on Highway 6 have since reopened; northbound lanes remain closed.
