Jerry Lewis, the rubber-faced comedian and director whose fundraising telethons became as famous as his hit movies, has died.

Publicist Candi Cazau says Lewis passed away Sunday morning of natural causes at age 91 in Las Vegas with his family by his side.

Lewis first became a star in a duo with Dean Martin, entertaining audiences in nightclubs, on television and in the movies. After their split in 1956, he starred in and directed a slew of hit films such as “The Nutty Professor.”

Later generations knew him primarily as the tireless conductor of the Labor Day weekend telethons to raise funds for victims of muscular dystrophy. Lewis retired from making movies in 1995, but returned as star of the 2016 drama “Max Rose.”

There will many eyes on the skies today as a solar eclipse will partially block out the sun for most of North America. The US will get the best show with many states experiencing a total eclipse.

Here in Southern Ontario, a partial eclipse is the best we can hope for, it's expected to begin around 1:00 pm, peak around 2:30 and be all wrapped up around 4. Viewing parties are being held right across the continent. You are reminded to use special eclipse sunglasses to view the celestial event, or risk serious eye injuries.

Windsor is closing its six outdoor pools this afternoon because of the eclipse.

The city's aquatics manager says it's a precautionary move due to the fact swimmers would be unlikely to resist looking up at the sky, even without protective eyewear.

Morning and evening swimming hours will not be affected.

The driver of the motorcycl was ejected and died as a result of his life threatening injuries.

The second incident happened about two hours earlier where OPP were called to a collision on the 401 just west of Foldens Line. The bike was travelling westbound when it struck the rear of a Toyota vehicle that was stopped in the middle lane. The female driver was also ejected and she was pronounced deceased in hospital. The initial collision caused a domino effect where three other vehicles were stopped ahead of the Toyota car.

Both names of the victims are not being released until next of kin is notified.
