Fatal Pileup Outside Of Toronto Shuts Down Highway After Massive Fire

Several vehicles were involved in a deadly fiery crash on Highway 400 on Oct. 31 2017

"I felt a lot of heat coming off it and just a lot of cars burnt up and people just off to the side. It looked like some people tried to reverse back and then there was other cars that I could see emergency lights on so they just literally left their cars and ran", she said.

"I automatically assumed that there was definitely casualties in there, like fatalities". You're going to want to get off as early as you can.

Initial police reports were that at least two people had died, but by late morning November 1 a Toronto media outlet reported that a third person was confirmed dead. The northbound and southbound lanes of Highway 400 are now closed and police have said these closures will be in effect for most of the day.

The crash occurred just before 11:30 p.m., causing a massive fire and several explosions.

"I'm still shaking. I can't believe what I saw", he told CBC.

Schmidt said the crash sent fuel spilling down the highway and described the blaze as "rolling down the highway".

Firefighters from eight different local services responded to the scene.

But Schmidt says initial inspections indicate that a transport truck may have collided into slowing traffic.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also tweeted his condolences.

"It's absolutely devastating and beyond description", Schmidt said, noting that first responders were shocked by what they found when they arrived. "My thoughts are with those who lost a loved one in the horrific crash on Highway 400".

"About 40 minutes before this collision occurred, there was another three-vehicle collision that occurred just a short distance further north", Schmidt said on Breakfast Television.

Patterson said that the coroner would be able to "bring in the best and brightest" from across the province to study the increase in collisions involving commercial vehicles.
