A person is useless and one other particular person has been taken to hospital following a head-on collision on a four-lane freeway within the Mount Hope space in Hamilton.

It occurred on Freeway 6 between Chippewa Street West and Leeming Street.

“Apparently one automobile drifted off into the trail of one other automobile, in opposing instructions on Freeway 6,” Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Kerry Schmidt mentioned.

One of many drivers was pronounced useless on the scene whereas the opposite was taken to hospital with severe accidents.  

“We have now a collision reconstruction staff on scene proper now. The freeway will stay closed for a number of hours whereas they conduct their investigation,” Schmidt mentioned.

He added that anybody with details about the lethal crash is being requested to contact Burlington OPP.

Schmidt mentioned the collision occurred in sunny, dry, circumstances and it is not but clear what brought on one of many automobiles to float into the opposite.

There have been no passengers in both automobile.
