Police have released footage of the aftermath of a collision in which a vehicle caught fire in Mississauga.

The incident was reported around 12:00 p.m. Wednesday (February 6) and took place on westbound Highway 401 just after Winston Churchill Boulevard.

According to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, a vehicle lost control on the road, collided with a barrier and then with a transport truck, and caught on fire.
