CityNews | posted Wednesday, Jan 3rd, 2018

Two people are dead after a single-vehicle crash in Scarborough on Wednesday morning.

Paramedics were called to a scene on Hwy. 401 eastbound near Warden Avenue at around 4 a.m.

They say an SUV crashed into a pole on the median between the express and collector lanes on the 401. The vehicle was reportedly completely wrapped around a sign supporting pole.

Two victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Details about the victims have not been released at this time. OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says speed may have been a factor in the crash.

The eastbound 401 is closed between Warden Avenue and Kennedy Road for the investigation.

The TTC is also being affected by the crash with delays on all routes along the Warden and 401 area.
