A vehicle burst into flames after a collision on Highway 401 in Mississauga during rush hour traffic early Wednesday evening in Mississauga.

The incident occurred just before 5 p.m. on the Highway 401 Eastbound Expressway, west of Dixie Road, resulting in a single vehicle rolling over and catching fire.

“(The) driver has serious non-life-threatening injuries,” said Ontario Provincial Police.

Firefighters and emergency crews also arrived on the scene and quickly put out the vehicle fire.
