WATCH: Woman dead, seven injured after fiery crash on QEW in Oakville

 

Provincial police say a woman is dead and seven others are injured after a fiery crash east of Toronto on Thursday night.

OPP spokeswoman Const. Lauren Ball says the crash occurred just before 11 p.m. in Oakville, Ont., and involved seven vehicles.

She says a tractor trailer burst into flames on the eastbound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way near Trafalgar Road.

Ball says a 34-year-old woman from Niagara Falls, Ont., was discovered dead in a car pinned between a concrete barrier and the tractor trailer early Friday morning as crews worked to clear the road.

She says seven others were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
