1 dead, another injured after Highway 401 collision in Milton

One person is dead after a collision on Highway 401 in Milton early Sunday morning, Ontario Provincial Police say. 

Emergency crews were called for a report of a collision in the eastbound lanes near Guelph Line at around 3:30 a.m.

OPP said one person was pronounced dead and another was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition. It is unclear how many vehicles were involved.

Investigators said the crash occurred as a result of a vehicle travelling in the wrong direction. No other details have been released as of yet.

An investigation into the collision is ongoing, police said. A stretch of the highway was closed Saturday morning but has since reopened. 

The collision marks the second time a person driving the wrong way on the country’s busiest highway resulted in a deadly crash, in less than a week. 

On Monday, Durham police officers pursued a liquor store robbery suspect driving the wrong way on Highway 401 in Whitby, killing four people in a collision that involved six vehicles.
