The youth was transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for further treatment, but later died from injuries sustained during the collision.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision. Members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Traffic Unit are now involved in the ongoing investigation.
