Norfolk OPP say the vehicle was traveling westbound on Windham Road 9 early Sunday afternoon when it left the road into a ditch, struck trees and rolled over.

Norfolk County fire and paramedics responded, and pronounced the driver deceased at the scene.

Windham Road 9 was closed for most of the afternoon, between Bakers Lane and Nixon Road while technical investigators probe the cause of the crash.

The identity of the accident victim is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Norfolk OPP, meanwhile, are investigating a drive-by shooting that occurred at about 3:45 a.m. on Sunday.

While an official police release has yet to be issued, a member of the family that operates the St. Williams Shell gas station made a social media post about the incident.

A posting on The Port Rowan Buzz page on Facebook said shots were fired at the building and gas pumps, located at Highway 24 and Forestry Farm Road about 4 kilometres north of the village of St. Williams.

“This is very upsetting as one wrong shot on the pumps could have blown up my whole family,” the post said, adding that police are reviewing surveillance camera footage.
