Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the incident happened yesterday in Mississauga, Ont.

A pregnant woman and a man were also taken to hospital but are now in stable condition.

Images from the scene of the crash show a crumpled hatchback that slammed into a light pole off to the side of the highway.
