A construction worker is dead and another taken to hospital in critical condition after a collision that closed Highway 17 for several hours.
An SUV was travelling west when it hit two parked construction vehicles.
The construction workers were also struck while outside of their vehicles.
One of the workers died and the other was transported to hospital in critical condition.
The two people in the SUV were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Highway 17 was closed from Campbell Drive to Calabogie Road, just west of Arnprior until just after 730 PM last night.
The Ministry of Labour is investigating the collision.
