MAXVILLE, Ont. – Police have identified a motorcyclist killed in a collision with a car near Highway 417, just north of Maxville. SD&G O.P.P. say 38-year-old Sylvain Coulombe of St-Eugene-Guigues, Quebec died when his Yamaha bike collided with a Chevrolet Cavalier at the intersection of the eastbound off-ramp of Highway 417 and County Road 20 (also known as Highland Rd.) around 9:40 a.m. this morning. Investigators say the car was entering County Road 20 from the off-ramp when the collision happened with the southbound bike. Coulombe was pronounced dead at the scene. The condition of the 77-year-old female car driver from Gatineau, Quebec is not known. Police are still investigating the crash and, at this point, no charges have been laid. Some roads in the area were closed for most of the day for the investigation but have since reopened.
