Two people are dead after a multi-vehicle crash on the Toronto-bound QEW in Burlington.
Provincial police were called to the scene near Brant Street just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
The crash happened in the Toronto-bound lanes and some vehicles ended up in the centre ditch between the eastbound and westbound lanes.
Police said two women were pronounced dead at the scene. OPP Const. Kevin Westhead said it appears they were travelling in the same vehicle.
Westhead said the cause of the crash is being investigated but it appears a vehicle crossed over to the eastbound lanes from the westbound lanes.
He said four vehicles were involved in the crash.
Two other people were taken to hospital, one with “significant injuries,” and another with minor injuries.
The QEW is closed in both directions between Brant and Guelph Line.
