Commuter nightmare on the east bound 401 to start your Monday

Police lights

Two people are dead and four injured after a fiery crash on the 401 in Mississauga. 

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt tweeted the accident happened late last  night in the highway's east bound lanes near Dixie Road and involved three vehicles, including a tractor trailer truck that went up in flames.
Schmidt said one of the victims died at the scene and five others were transported to hospital where one later died.

The crash littered the highway with debris, forcing the closure of the east bound lanes at the accident site.

The highway is expected to be closed in that area for most of the day.
