The 36-year-old driver — the lone occupant of the car — was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other injuries.

The westbound QEW was closed for the investigation but has since reopened.

The SIU says at the time of the crash, the OPP was assisting with maintenance operation in the area.

Seven SIU investigators have been assigned to the case. The SIU is asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call 416-622-1935 or 1-800-787-8529 (ext. 1935).
