Highway 427 southbound re-opens after fatal crash

The southbound lanes of Highway 427 re-opened to traffic just before 7 a.m. Friday after a fatal single-vehicle accident near Finch Avenue West closed the busy highway for hours.

The crash happened at about 1:45 a.m. Police say an Audi driven by a single male in his 20s rolled over multiple times, ejecting the driver.

"It’s believed the driver may have been run over by several vehicles," reported the CBC's Jermaine Hylton from the scene.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them.
