Six in hospital after Gardiner crash

CityNews | posted Tuesday, Jan 3rd, 2017


Six people are in hospital, one of them with life-threatening injuries, after a crash on the Gardiner Expressway on Tuesday morning.

The crash happened near Highway 427 just after midnight. It appears that three vehicles were involved in the collision, and one may have been torn in half.

A limousine rear-ended a car, police told 680 NEWS. Four people in the car were hurt, and two people in the limousine were also hurt. The driver of the third vehicle left the scene of the crash, and police are still trying to track down the car and the driver.

One man, believed to be in his 20s, has life-threatening injuries. He was in the car, not the limousine. Two other people had serious injuries.

Toronto police told CityNews alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

The eastbound lanes of the Gardiner were closed at the 427 but reopened just after 8:15 a.m.
