Woman sole victim in deadly crash on QEW in Burlington

A woman is the sole victim in a fatal two-vehicle crash in Burlington Wednesday night.

Ontario Provincial Police speed is being considered a factor in the collision. It happened around 9:30 p.m. on the westbound Queen Elizabeth Way at Guelph Line.

The victim was the driver of one of the cars involved, which Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says was reportedly travelling at a high speed before rolling several times. She was rushed to hospital with critical injuries but did not survive.

The driver of the other vehicle was unhurt, Schmidt said. Both vehicles were significantly damaged. 

A collision reconstruction team was on scene investigating and all traffic was forced off the westbound lanes of the QEW at Guelph line, which remained closed for several hours. 

Police are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.
