Speed a factor in DVP crash that sent 2 people to hospital in critical condition

Toronto police say speed was a factor in a multi-vehicle crash on the Don Valley Parkway that sent two people to hospital with life-threatening injuries on Wednesday.

Police say a gray Nissan Sentra was travelling southbound on the highway at a high rate of speed when it struck a white Chevrolet Silverado that was going in the same direction near York Mills Road. The Nissan then lost control and struck a barrier on the west side of the DVP. The Silverado struck a blue dump truck.

A 42-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman had to be extricated from the vehicle and were taken to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.

The drivers of the Silverado and blue dump truck did not suffer any serious injuries.

The crash forced the closure of the southbound DVP from Highway 401 to York Mills Road for most of the afternoon before reopening around 5 p.m.

There is no word on if any charges will be laid.
