Grey county OPP were called Monday afternoon to a single vehicle crash on Grey road 18.

Grey county OPP have now released the name of a man who died following a single vehicle crash.

The victim is 81 year old Joseph Edward Bell of Meaford.

OPP say Bell's car left Grey road 18 about 1:30 on Monday afternoon and entered the ditch.

Police say he got out of the Toyota Yaris and returned to the roadway where he was helped by a passing motorist.

However, Bell apparently went into medical distress and was pronounced dead at the scene by a coroner.

The incident closed Grey road 18 from Grey road 29 to the Gerald Shortt Parkway in Meaford for about 2 hours while police investigated.

A post mortem is planned in Owen Sound for Tuesday.
