A 6-year-old boy has died after a crash on Highway 403 in Mississauga on Friday afternoon.

The boy, a pregnant woman and a male driver were injured in a collision on the eastbound ramp to Mavis Road around the noon hour.

The 6-year-old was critically injured. Ornge was called to airlift the child to hospital, but said it couldn’t because of a low-cloud ceiling at Billy Bishop Airport.

Police say he was pronounced dead in hospital on Saturday. The driver and the pregnant woman are reportedly in stable condition.

The cause of the crash is unknown at this time. An investigation is ongoing.
