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.
