One person is dead and several others are injured following a serious multi-vehicle collision on Highway 400 in Toronto.

The collision occurred in the southbound lanes of the highway just south of Finch Avenue.

Police say seven vehicles were involved including a transport truck and another vehicle that caught fire.

One 30-year-old man of Richmond Hill, Ont. was pronounced dead at the scene. Another person was rushed to hospital with serious injuries. Others were treated for injuries at the scene.

The southbound lanes of the highway were shut down from Finch Avenue to Highway 401 for over 12 hours before being reopened Thursday evening.

“We expect the on-scene investigation to be completed by 8:00 p.m. at which time cleaning will commence,” said OPP Sergeant Kerry Schmidt.

“In terms of full reopening of the highway, it could be sometime after 8:00 p.m. or as late as 10:00 p.m. but for now, we’re hoping our investigation to be complete by 8:00 p.m. tonight.”
