A 74-year-old man has died following a head-on collision Wednesday night in Milton.

Halton Region police say the Rockwood resident was driving an SUV on Guelph Line at about 5:30 p.m. when the vehicle collided with an oncoming pickup truck.

The elderly man was pronounced dead at the scene while a 51-year-old man from Campbellford driving the pickup was taken to Milton District Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Guelph Line was closed for about six hours while the investigation was conducted.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
