UPDATE: 82 year old motorcyclist dead following crash in Mississauga
A fatality has been reported this afternoon.
Earlier today (July 12), Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a motorcycle accident on eastbound Highway 401 at Hurontario Street.
The motorcyclist, an 82 year old man from London, Ontario, was transported to hospital without vital signs.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
According to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, the vehicle was in the left collector lane and appeared to be trying to access the express lanes.
The vehicle hit the barrier that separates the express and collector lanes, causing the motorcyclist to be ejected.
All eastbound lanes have been shut down and are expected to remain closed for approximately two hours. Traffic is being forced off at Hurontario.
OPP’s collision reconstruction team is on scene investigating.
Motorists are advised to take alternate routes.
