A Cambridge man has died as a result of injuries he received during a vehicle collision over the holidays.

The 40-year-old father of two was driving northbound on Hwy 6, at 10:45 p.m., December 22, when he collided with a van driven by Vivian Porto of Hamilton.

Porto, who was driving home from her son Francesco's hockey game, in Guelph, had lost control on a patch of drifting snow, before veering into the northbound lane, according to OPP.

All four people in her vehicle were killed, including 13-year-old Francesco, Porto's 10-year-old daughter Azzadin and 10-year-old niece, Emily.

Everyone in the Cambridge-bound vehicle initially survived the crash.

However the man's female passenger remains in hospital in serious but stable condition and his 17-year-old son also remains in hospital, in stable condition. His 14-year-old daughter was recently released.

The man was in critical condition, and passed away on January 11.

OPP are not releasing the names of the victims at the request of the family.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Provincial Constable Chamberlain at 905-681-2511.
