Guelph police say one person is dead following a collision on Thursday afternoon.
Just after 3:30 p.m., police said the driver of a pickup truck had a medical episode while going westbound on Stone Road.

Then the truck reportedly hit several parked and unoccupied cars before coming to a rest in the parking lot of Stone Road Mall.
Police said an-off duty nurse tried performing life-saving efforts before the 64-year-old was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A 32-year-old pedestrian was airlifted to a hospital out of the region with serious injuries to her lower body. Another woman was a passenger in the truck at the time of the collision, however authorities said she was not injured.
