A Toronto paramedic and his partner were killed after a vehicle collided with a group of motorcyclists near Haliburton on Saturday evening.
OPP say around 5 p.m. an eastbound vehicle on Highway 118 crossed the centre line and collided with four motorcyclists among a group of seven. The crash happened east of Haliburton between Trappers Trail and Essonville Line in Highlands East Township, about 100 kilometres north of Peterborough.
The victims have been identified by friends and family as George Eliadis and Shari Williams. Eliadis was a deputy commander with Toronto Paramedic Services.
Two other men in their 40s suffered life-threatening injuries and were airlifted to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.
The highway was shut down for several hours but the cause of the crash has yet to be determined. Police are seeking any witnesses to the crash.
