Four people are dead following a fiery crash on Highway 401 near Kingston.

Two more people are in hospital with serious injuries, Ontario provincial police said.

The crash happened west of Joyceville Road around 1:25 a.m. on Thursday.

Seven vehicles, including four tractor-trailers, a commercial truck and two passenger vehicles, were involved in the crash.

One of the cars was engulfed in flames. All four people inside that vehicle died. Their names have not been released.

“We don’t have any concerns about anything the tractor-trailers were carrying,” Sgt. Angie Atkinson told Breakfast Television.

There are detours in the area as police investigate. Atkinson said she anticipated the closures would be in place for much of the day.
