On Saturday January 5, 2019 at around 10:15 p.m. Bracebridge OPP, Gravenhurst Fire and Muskoka Paramedic Services responded to the Gravenhurst Wharf near Boston Pizza for a snowmobile collision.
It was reported that a male and a female were headed towards shore on a snowmobile and struck a steel dock at high speed. The male driver received fatal injuries and the female passenger was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
40-year-old Dennis Totten of Gravenhurst was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators remained in the area for several hours overnight while OPP members trained in collision reconstruction measure, document the scene and gathered evidence. The Bracebridge OPP continues to investigate the cause of the collision.
A post mortem examination of the deceased rider will be scheduled later this week.
More information will be released when it becomes available.
